Bicycles

Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you want to transport it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should detach all the removable elements – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after putting the bike in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jostling during transportation because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle shipping

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