Bicycles

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

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, 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 container the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you may want to detach all the removable elements – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (like gears 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 empty space will help to absorb jostling during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bicycle shipping

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