Bicycles

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

Preparing a bike for transportation

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 delicate parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). 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 putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the removable parts – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the container after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize jostling during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved 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 bikes. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
