Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you need to ship it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest container which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after putting the bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jostling on the road as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not need to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – 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 your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
