Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you should detach all the mobile parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate box or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after placing your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jostling on the road as the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Price of bike shipping mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
