Bicycles

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

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest box in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you may want to detach all the removable parts – like lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate package or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jolting during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
