Bicycles

Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you need to move it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best box in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, try to acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you should remove all the removable parts – like lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after putting the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

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