Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you ought to transport it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will find a box that is the most fitting 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 container, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate package or wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike 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 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bike shipping mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
