Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to transport it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will 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 placing the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the mobile elements – like lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should 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 (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the box after placing your bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks during transportation because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing 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 your bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle shipping

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