Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you need to ship it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should detach all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller package or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the container after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jostling during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather 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 will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
