Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you want to transport it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the removable parts – like lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after putting the bike in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb any shocks during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle transportation

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