Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you ought to transport 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 ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the container after placing your bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize any shocks on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

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