Bicycles

Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you need to ship it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the removable elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate package or enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after putting your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jostling on the road as 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 want to find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
