Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to detach all the removable parts – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally 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 elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize any shocks during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bike shipping mostly hinges 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).
