Bicycles

Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to move it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after placing your bike in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jolting during shipping as the bike will be unable 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 bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Price 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 delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
