Bicycles

Bike transport category will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you should remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate box or enclose them in cardboard and attach 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 foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after placing your bike in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize any shocks during shipping because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Cost of bike 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).
