Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you want to move it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should remove all the removable parts – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate package or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after placing your bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb any shocks during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around in the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

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