Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to ship it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest box which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the removable parts – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after putting the bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jolting on the road because the bike will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

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