Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you have to move it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the container after putting the bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jolting during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

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

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
