Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you need to move it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jolting on the road as the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
