Bicycles

Bike transport section comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to ship it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best box in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – such as lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after placing the bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jostling on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not have to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

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