Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you want to move it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements 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 be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the box after placing the bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jostling during transportation because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bicycle shipping

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