Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you need to transport it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best container in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should detach all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to 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 (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after placing the bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce any shocks on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

Price of bike transportation mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
