Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you want to move it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.
Getting the bike ready for transportation
The best box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, 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 box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should remove all the mobile elements – like lights or handlebars. Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller package or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jostling on the road as the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape.
If you want to search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
Price of bicycle shipping
Cost of bicycle shipping mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
