Bicycles

Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you want to transport it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best box which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the removable parts – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after placing the bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jolting on the road because 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 want to find a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation

Price of bike shipping mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
