Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the removable elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller box or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jostling during transportation as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bike transportation

Price of bike shipping mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
