Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you ought to transport it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jostling on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

Price of bicycle 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).
