Bicycles

Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to ship it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest box which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to detach all the removable parts – like lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and secure them 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 have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bike shipping

Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
