Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you ought to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest box which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the removable elements – such as lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the package after putting your bike in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce any shocks during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges 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).
