Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you want to transport it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the removable parts – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate package or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea 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 (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after placing your bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks on the road as the bike will not be able 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 ship your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bike shipping

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
