Bike transport section comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you want to move it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.
Getting the bike ready for transportation
The safest box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bike (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the mobile elements – like lights or handlebars. After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after placing your bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jolting during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape.
If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.
Price of bicycle transportation
Price of bicycle shipping mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
