Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to ship it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the removable parts – like lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after placing your bike in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce any shocks during transportation because 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 ship your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bicycle shipping

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
