Bicycles

Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you want to transport it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should detach all the mobile parts – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after putting the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
