Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to ship it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to remove all the removable elements – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller package or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after placing the bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jostling during shipping as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle transportation

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