Bicycles

Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to move it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, try to find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you should detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after placing your bike in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce any shocks during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle shipping

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