Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best container in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially 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 (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should remove all the mobile elements – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after placing the bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jostling on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing 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 assure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
