Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you want to transport it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the removable parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jostling during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
