Bicycles

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

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, try to find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should detach all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate package or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore 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 parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the package after putting your bike in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jolting during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
