Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to transport it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best container in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller box or wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the package after putting your bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather 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 usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Price of bike shipping mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
