Bicycles

Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest box which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the package after placing the bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jolting during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
