Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to transport it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after placing the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

Cost of bike transportation mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
