Bicycles

Bike transport section comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you want to transport it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best box in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you should detach all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after placing the bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jolting during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bike transportation

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