Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you need to move it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest box which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the mobile parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jolting during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Cost of bike shipping mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
