Bicycles

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

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the removable parts – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller package or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the box after placing the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jolting during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle transportation

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