Bicycles

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

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the removable parts – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after putting your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jolting during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

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