Bicycles

Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you want to transport it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a container that will be 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 bicycle in the box, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after putting your bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jolting on the road as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

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