Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you need to ship it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best box which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after putting the bike in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb any shocks during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle transportation

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