Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you ought to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, try to acquire 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 placing the bike in the package, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the package after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jolting during shipping because the bike will be unable to move around inside the container. 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 provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bicycle shipping

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