Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the mobile parts – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks during transportation because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not need to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation

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