Bicycles

Bike transport section comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest box in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you should remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after putting your bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks on the road because the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

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