Bicycles

Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you have to transport it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the removable elements – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after placing your bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jostling on the road because the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. 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 secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

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