Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you need to ship it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should remove all the removable parts – such as lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce any shocks on the road because the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
