Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you need to move it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate box or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jostling during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle transportation
