Bicycles

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

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should detach all the removable parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the container after putting the bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to ship your 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 the bike will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

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