Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting on the road because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

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