Bicycles

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

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the mobile elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller package or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after putting your bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jolting during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
