Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you should remove all the removable elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate package or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after putting your bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jostling during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, 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

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
