Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you have to ship it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best box which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will 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 you place the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after putting the bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize any shocks on the road as the bike will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bike transportation

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
