Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you have to transport it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate box or enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting on the road as the bike 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 search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

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