Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you need to ship it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best container in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you may want to detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate package or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after placing your bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
