Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you ought to transport it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section 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 bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should remove all the removable elements – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the container after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not have to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
