Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to move it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest box in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after putting the bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jostling during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the container. 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 have to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
