Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you ought to ship it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have 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 bike in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should remove all the removable 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 attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after placing the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks on the road as the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

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