Bicycles

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

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). 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 package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you may want to remove all the removable elements – like lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after putting your bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jostling during shipping because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
