Bicycles

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

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest 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 box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the removable elements – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the package after placing the bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jolting during transportation as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Cost of bike transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
