Bicycles

Bike transport category will be useful when you are going on a trip 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. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest container which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after putting the bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize any shocks during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

Price of bike transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
