Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to move it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike 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 packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, 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 package, make sure that you will acquire a container 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 bicycle in the box, you should detach all the mobile elements – like lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jostling during shipping 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 would rather hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
