Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you have to ship it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest box in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller package or wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after putting your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jostling during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle shipping

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