Bicycles

Bike transport category will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you need to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should detach all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller package or wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the package after placing the bike in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jolting on the road because the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t have 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 ensure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bike transportation

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