Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you ought to transport it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to acquire a box that is the most fitting 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 should detach all the mobile elements – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate box or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after placing the bicycle 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 be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

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