Bicycles

Bicycle transport section comes in handy 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 ought to transport it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jostling during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
