Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you should remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate package or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure 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 be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

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