Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to move it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best container which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate package or wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after placing your bike in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jolting during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bike shipping mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
