Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you need to move it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the mobile elements – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the container after placing your bike in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks on the road as 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 find a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Price of bike shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
