Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to ship it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the container after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jostling during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
