Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you ought to transport it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should detach all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after placing your bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb any shocks during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle shipping mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
