Bicycles

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

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, try to acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should remove all the removable elements – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the container after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jostling during shipping because the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can help you with that. 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 shipping

Price of bicycle shipping mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
