Bicycles

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

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should remove all the mobile elements – like lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the container after putting the bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks on the road as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bike transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
