Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the removable elements – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after putting the bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

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