Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you want to transport it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest container which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, try to acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should remove all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate container or wrap 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 wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after placing the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jolting on the road as the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
