Bicycles

Bike transport section comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you ought to ship it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the mobile parts – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jolting during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
