Bicycles

Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to transport it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most similar 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 package, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after putting the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize any shocks on the road because the bike will be unable to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not need to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

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