Bicycles

Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to ship it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the removable parts – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on the route length 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).
