Bicycles

Bike transport category will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to transport your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to ship it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

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

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
