Bicycles

Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you want to ship it home. Other frequent 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 best box in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should detach all the mobile parts – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after placing the bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks on the road because 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 would rather hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not need to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

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