Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to transport it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should remove all the mobile parts – like lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after putting your bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize any shocks during transportation because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

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