Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you have to move it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after putting the bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jostling on the road because the bike will be unable to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bike transportation

Price of bike shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
