Bicycles

Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you ought to transport it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best box in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the package after placing your bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize jostling on the road as the bike will be unable to move around in the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

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