Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to ship it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to acquire a box that will be 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 remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after putting your bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jolting during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

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

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bike transportation mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
