Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to move it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jolting during transportation because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
