Bicycles

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

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bike (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a box that will be the most similar 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 mobile elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate box or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to 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 parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after putting your bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jostling on the road as the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

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