Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.
Preparing a bicycle for shipping
The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should remove all the removable elements – like lights or saddles. Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller package or wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after placing the bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting during transportation because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape.
If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not need to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. 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
Price of bike shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
