Bike transport section will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to ship it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.
Preparing a bike for transportation
The safest box which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should remove all the mobile elements – such as lights or saddles. After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after placing your bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jostling during transportation because 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 would rather search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
Cost of bike transportation
Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
