Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the removable parts – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after putting the bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jostling during transportation because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t have to provide 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 often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Price of bike transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
