Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you ought to ship it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, 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 bike in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after placing the bike in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize any shocks during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
