Bicycles

Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to move it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the package after putting the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jostling during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t have to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
