Bicycles

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

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (like bicycle chain). 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 empty space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate box or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after putting your bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike shipping mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
