Bicycles

Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to transport it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the removable elements – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jostling during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
