Bicycles

Bike transport section comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to transport it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, 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 package the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you should remove all the removable parts – like lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after placing the bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce any shocks during shipping as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Price of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
