Bicycles

Bike transport category will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to transport it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you should detach all the removable parts – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bike transportation mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
