Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you have to move it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jolting during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
