Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you need to transport it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you should remove all the removable parts – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after putting the bike in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jolting during shipping because the bike will be unable to move around in the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not need to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bike shipping

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