Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport 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 packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, try to acquire 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 container, you should detach all the removable parts – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the container after placing your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce any shocks during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

Price of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
