Bicycles

Bike transport section comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of shipping your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to find a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you may want to detach all the removable elements – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller package or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after placing the bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jostling on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
