Bicycles

Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to move it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you may want to remove all the removable parts – like lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb any shocks during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not need to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation

Price of bike transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
