Bicycles

Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the container after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jostling during shipping as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
