Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to move it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly 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 do not have original box, try to find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should remove all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the container after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation

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