Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to ship it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest box in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate package or enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (for example 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 paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jolting during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bike transportation

Price of bike shipping mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
