Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy 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 have to ship it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest container which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the removable elements – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the package after putting your bike in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize any shocks on the road because the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
