Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you need to move it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best container which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the mobile parts – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after putting your bike in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jolting on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
