Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after putting your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jostling during shipping 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 want to search for a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

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