Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you have to ship it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller box or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jostling during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bike transportation

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