Bicycles

Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you need to ship it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the box but you risk 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 container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should remove all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the container after placing your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb any shocks during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not need to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

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