Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you need to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most similar 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 may want to remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jostling during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
