Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you want to ship it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship 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, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to detach all the removable elements – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after putting the bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce any shocks during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping
