Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to ship it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (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 free space left in the package after putting your bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize jolting during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

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