Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.
Preparing a bike for transportation
The best container in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars. Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller box or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after placing the bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize any shocks during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape.
If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.
Price of bicycle shipping
Price of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
