Bicycles

Bike transport section 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 ought to move it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best box which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you should detach all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after putting the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jolting during shipping because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

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