Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to move it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should detach all the mobile elements – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after placing the bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jolting on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
