Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you ought to ship it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize any shocks during transportation because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bike transportation

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