Bicycles

Bike transport category will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to transport your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you ought to ship it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best container which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the container after putting the bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jolting during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bicycle shipping

Cost 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).
