Bicycles

Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you want 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 bicycle ready for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a box 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 may want to remove all the mobile parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after putting your bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jostling during transportation because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bike transportation

Cost of bike shipping mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
