Bicycles

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

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the removable parts – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure 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 have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the package after putting the bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jostling during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bike shipping

Price of bike transportation 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).
