Bicycles

Bike transport section comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. 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 Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best box in which you can transport a bike is its original package. 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 vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after putting the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jolting during shipping as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
