Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you should detach all the removable parts – like lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate box or wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the container after putting your bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jostling on the road because the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
