Bicycles

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

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest container which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the removable elements – like lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after placing your bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jostling during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Price of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
