Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory 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. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most similar 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 box, you should detach all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as 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 secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the container after placing the bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jostling on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Price of bike shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
