Bike transportation – how to organise that
Bicycles are mostly transported during removals or holidays. Quite often people want to transport bike far away to have sport adventures in new places. Regardless of the cause or distance of the transportation, there are couple ways that make the shipping easier. The best way to achieve that is hiring an experienced transport provider that will take a special care of your costly sport equipment. You will find lots of transport providers on Clicktrans.com – online marketplace for transport services. You simply must list your bike then give every important information about the expected service e.g. place of arrival and delivery, dates and weight of the cargo. Listing is at no cost and extremely quick.
A transport provider chosen by you will come for your load when you expect that and deliver the bicycle across the country or internationally. You simply need to be sure that a bike is prepared for the transportation. If you don’t want to have this on your mind – you can also hire a transport provider to deal with that instead of you.
Getting ready a bike for shipment with a hauler
If you intend to ship a second-hand bicycle, you need to get it ready for the road. Of course, it is possible to do it on your own, yet you should plan it with care. Well-packed load ensures that your bicycle will be safe during transportation. Let’s not forget that there are lots of bumps on the road that may damage your sport equipment. Mostly if you transport a cycle at long distance.
Firstly, search for a box that is of a similar size to your bicycle. The best way is to use the original packaging given by the bike producer. In case you lost or threw away that packaging, you can easily buy a new box at building stores or on the Internet.
Before putting a bike in a box, take apart all the moving things that might be easily damaged during transportation. Dismantle parts such as: chain, lamps or belt. Handlebar must be put in parallel with the frame. Also, it’s important to adjust the saddle down. All disassembled parts put carefully in a separate smaller packaging. Don’t lose any part! Wrap handlebar and saddle with bubble foil or just with some textile found at home – the latter option is definitely much more green.
After placing the bicycle in a cardboard use fillers for extra safety. Things such as newspapers, materials or styrofoam are usually great fillers. Fillers will make sure that bicycle will stay still on the road. Close the box with a strong tape to ensure that everything will stay inside.
Transporting a bicycle with an airline
Some people transport a bicycle in an airplane. Before you choose that option, read more about airlines policies as well costs regarding freight shipping. It could be a very expensive type of shipping.
Moving a bike in a vehicle
When you own a vehicle, there is an option to ship a bike by yourself. Even thought, it is not an easy task, it is possible. However it is more convenient to hire a transport company, especially when you want to transport load at long distance.
The boot of a car is a space where you could transport a sport equipment. Of course, it is possible when you possess a mid-size or large car. Alas, you have to dismantle all parts of a bicycle to put them harmlessly in the trunk. Another downside of that solution is that your load will almost certainly exploit all the space in the trunk which is not ideal in case you plan a trip and must take other baggage.
That is why many people try … to transport a bicycle on a roof rack. It saves space in the vehicle and even offers a chance to transport more than one bicycle. Nevertheless it is not as practical at long-distance. Nevertheless, if you go for it, choose the roof rack well as well as set it up according to the installation guide. It will not only protect the bike from danger but also your passengers! Bike should stay still on a roof rack. During a delivery you must pull over if you hear any bangs or movements coming from the top of your car. It is important to remember that the well-being of other drivers and passengers in other cars is also on the line.
The cost of delivering a bike with a hauler
The cost of bike transportation relies on a few particular factors. Firstly, essential is the distance to cover by a transport provider. The amount of bikes, the size or date of shipping are also significant. Thanks to Clicktrans you can get attractive offers from shipping companies from European countries because they can take your cargo as an extra load because they go to the same place anyway. That is profitable for both sides and helps to avoid empty runs. Finally, it makes transport more green in a very simple way.
