Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to ship it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the container after placing the bike in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize any shocks during transportation because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

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