Bicycles

Bike transport category will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to move it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, try to find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate box or wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after placing your bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize any shocks during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not need to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bike transportation

Price of bike transportation mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
