Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to move it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best box in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, try to acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after placing the bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jolting during transportation as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
