Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you need to ship it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best container in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (like 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 fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should remove all the mobile elements – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after placing your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jostling during transportation because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, 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 transportation

Cost of bike shipping mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
