Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection 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 bought a bike online and you want to transport it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after placing your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks during shipping because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

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