Bicycles

Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of shipping your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to transport it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the removable elements – like lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after placing your bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jostling on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bike transportation mostly hinges 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).
