Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection will be useful when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to transport it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not need to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bike transportation

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