How to arrange bike shipping
Bikes are usually transported due to removals or vacations. In many cases people want to ship bicycle internationally to experience sport adventures in new environment. Regardless of the reason or distance of the transportation, there are couple steps that make the shipping easier. The best way to achieve that is hiring an experienced shipping company that will have an eye on precious load. You will find thousands of haulers on Clicktrans.com – online marketplace for shipping services. You just must list your bike and add all essential details about the delivery e.g. distance, dates or weight of the cargo. Listing is without charge and takes less than 5 minutes.
A transport provider hired by you will take your cargo when you expect that and deliver the bicycle across Europe. You simply need to be sure that your bicycle is ready for the transportation. If you don’t feel like doing this by yourself – you may as well hire a transport provider to deal with that instead of you.
Getting ready a bicycle for shipment with a hauler
If you intend to ship a used bike, you need to prepare it for the road. Naturally, it is possible to do it by yourself, yet you should plan it with caution. Well-packed cargo guarantees that your bike will be out of danger during shipping. Let’s not forget that there are lots of vibrations during transportation that can damage your bike. Mostly if you transport a cycle at long distance.
Firstly, find a box that is of a similar size to your bicycle. The ultimate option is to use the original box given by the bike producer. In case you lost or threw away that packaging, you can quickly purchase a new cardboard at hardware shops or on the Internet.
Before putting a bike in a box, take apart all the moving things that might be easily damaged during shipping. Dismantle parts like: pedals, lamps or belt. Handlebar must be put in parallel with the frame. What is more, it’s important to move the saddle down. All removed things put with caution in a separate small boxes. Don’t lose any part! Wrap handlebar and saddle with bubble foil or just with some material found at home – the latter option is without a doubt much more eco-friendly.
When you put the bicycle in a box fill the empty spaces for extra safety. Things such as waste-paper, materials or styrofoam are definitely effective fillers. Fillers will make sure that bike will stay still during transportation. Close the box with a strong strip to ensure that everything will stay where is supposed to.
Shipping a bicycle in a plane
Some people transport a bike in an airplane. Before you choose that option, check the airlines policies and costs regarding freight shipping. It could be a very expensive type of transportation.
Moving a bike in a vehicle
When you possess a vehicle, there is an opportunity to transport a bicycle by yourself. Even thought, it is not an easy task, it is possible. However it is more convenient to hire a transport company, particularly when you want to transport load at long distance.
The boot of a car is one of the places where you may transport a bike. For sure, it is possible when you have a mid-size or big vehicle. Alas, you must dismantle all parts of a bicycle to place them with safety in the boot. One more downside of that solution is that your load will almost certainly take up all the space in the boot which is not convenient in case you go on a trip and must take other baggage.
That is why some people try to transport a bicycle o … n a roof rack. It helps to save some space in the vehicle and even gives a chance to ship more than 1 bike. However it is not as practical at long-distance. Yet, if you go for it, choose the roof rack well as well as install it according to the installation guide. It will ensure not only the safety of the bike but also your passengers! Bike must stay still on a roof rack. During a delivery you have to pull over if you hear any noises or movements coming from the top of your car. It is essential to remember that the safety of another drivers as well passengers in other cars is also at risk.
The cost of shipping a bike with a hauler
The price for bike transportation relies on many different aspects. Firstly, important is the distance to cover by a hauler. The number of bicycles, the size or date of shipping matter as well. On Clicktrans you will find attractive offers from shipping companies from all over Europe because they can take your cargo as an additional load because they go to the same place anyway. That is profitable for both sides and helps to avoid empty runs. Ultimately, it influences transport to be more ecological in a very easy way.
