Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should remove all the mobile elements – like lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after placing the bike in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
