Bicycles

Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you want to ship it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you may want to detach all the removable parts – like lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate package or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after placing your bike in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb any shocks during shipping because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
