Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you have to transport it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you should detach all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after putting your bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize jostling on the road because the bike will be unable to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bicycle shipping

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