Bicycles

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

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the removable elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after placing your bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not need to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

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