Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you need to move it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to detach all the removable parts – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after placing your bike in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce any shocks on the road because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the container. 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 worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

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