Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are planning 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. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, try to find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you should detach all the mobile elements – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after putting the bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb any shocks during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle 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).
