Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you need to ship it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the removable elements – like lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate package or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after putting the bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce any shocks during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not need to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

Price of bike transportation mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
