Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best container which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should detach all the mobile parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate box or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the container after placing the bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce any shocks during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
