Bicycles

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

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should detach all the mobile parts – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller box or wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after placing the bike in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jostling during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Cost of bike shipping mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
