Bicycles

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

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after putting the bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jolting on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

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