Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to move it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.
Getting the bike ready for shipping
The safest box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should detach all the mobile elements – like lights or handlebars. After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the package after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jolting on the road because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape.
If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.
Price of bicycle shipping
Price of bicycle shipping mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
