Bicycles

Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best box which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the container after putting the bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks on the road because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

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