Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to move it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest box which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after placing your bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize any shocks during shipping because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not have to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bike transportation

Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on how long the route is 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).
