Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning a trip 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 posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after putting your bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle shipping mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
