Bicycles

Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to transport it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best container in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you should remove all the mobile elements – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the container after putting your bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jostling on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not have to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
