Bicycles

Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – such as lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after putting the bike in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jolting on the road as the bike will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
