Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best container in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the mobile elements – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after placing the bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize any shocks on the road because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

Price of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
