Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to move it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best box which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you may want to detach all the removable parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not need to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bike shipping

Price of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
