Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.
Preparing a bicycle for shipping
The safest box in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a box 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 bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – such as lights or saddles. Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate package or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the box after putting your bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb any shocks during shipping because the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape.
If you would rather find a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
Price of bicycle shipping
Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
