Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you want to transport it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest box which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should detach all the mobile elements – like lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after putting the bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jostling during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bike transportation

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
