Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you want to move it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you should remove all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the container after placing your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb any shocks during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

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