Bicycles

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

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should remove all the mobile elements – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after placing your bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jostling on the road as the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not have to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

Price of bicycle shipping mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
