Bicycles

Bike transport category will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to move it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best container which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bike (such as 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 free space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the container after placing the bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
