Bicycles

Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you ought to ship it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest box which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after putting the bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jostling during shipping because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle 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).
