Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection 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 ought to transport it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you should remove all the removable parts – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate package 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 wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after placing the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jostling during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
