Bicycles

Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to ship it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the mobile elements – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate package or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the container after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb any shocks on the road because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle shipping mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
