Bicycles

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

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, 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 bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the container after placing the bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jostling on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Price of bike transportation mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
