Bicycles

Bike transport section comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest box in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

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