You can transport anything, including bicycles, without having to dismantle them completely. Wise Move has a group of transporters who can deliver your bicycle at a low cost anywhere in New Zealand. We will explain how this works.

Preparing to ship your bicycle

Usually, shipping companies that transport regular parcels are expensive, and they don't specialize in shipping bikes. But if you use Wise Move, you can save money by choosing from a wide range of transporters who will compete for your business. You can also read customer reviews to choose the best company for your needs based on pricing, reviews, and availability.

However, it's your responsibility to prepare and pack your bicycle properly for transport. You can choose between cardboard boxes or specialized travel cases. Cardboard boxes are cheaper but don't offer much protection, while travel cases are more expensive but more secure. You don't need to dismantle the bike regardless of which option you choose.

When you transport your bike, you can wrap it in blankets and fasten it to the trailer wall or truck bed, depending on the method you choose. If you're not sure about the type of service you're getting with a price quote, ask the transporter to provide more information so you can clarify the details.

How to ship your bike

Shipping a bicycle is easier than you might think. You can do it in three steps.

Create a listing for your shipment

To get an accurate quote for transporting your bicycle, you should first think about the transport time, the locations for pick-up and delivery. You should also have the weight and dimensions of your bicycle and be prepared to explain how you will package it for shipping. The more details you provide, the more accurate your quote will be. 

Choose the shipping company that fits your needs

When you post your listing, many companies will send you quotes to compete for your business. You can ask them questions and talk directly with them to get an idea of their experience, professionalism, and response time.

Wise Move allows transport providers to include their safety records, transportation history, and customer feedback on their profile. Checking this information will help you know how many bikes they've transported in the past and read reviews from previous customers. After reviewing their profiles, talking with them, and considering their quotes, you can confidently choose the best transport provider for your bike.

Shipping and Delivery of your Bicycle

Once you’ve selected a provider, contact them with any additional questions, details, or concerns you have. Share any third-party contact information to help your shipment go smoother. Coordinate with the service provider on your bicycle's pick-up and delivery locale. If you have any issues, you can contact us here at Wise Move, as we’re always available to help at any point in your bicycle transport.

How Much Will Shipping My Bicycle Cost?

The average bicycle shipping costs depend on how far it’s going. If you are sending your bike less than 100 km it will cost roughly $0.80 per kilometre; however, if you are shipping it further than 100 km but less than 1,000 km, the cost will be cheaper at around $0.20 per km.

If you need to transport a bicycle anywhere in New Zealand, you can trust  Wise Move to find the best provider at the cheapest rate. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us anytime.

It was a urgent job but these guys accommodated my time, also went the extra mile when there were a few extra bits to get on the truck. Was difficult with mattress and base from the upstairs and was surprised they managed to get everything moved. Every furniture were well cared of, not a single scratch. Would highly recommend and will be using them again in the future!
