Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the mobile elements – such as lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after placing the bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jolting on the road because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bike transportation

Price of bike transportation mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
