Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to ship it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after placing the bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bike transportation

Price of bicycle shipping mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
