How to arrange bike shipping
Bikes are often shipped due to removals or holidays. It happens that people need to transport bike even to the other part of the globe to have cycling adventures in new environment. Regardless of the reason or distance of the transportation, there are a few ways that make the shipping easier. The simplest approach to achieve that is hiring a professional hauler that will take a special care of your costly load. You will find lots of transport providers visiting Clicktrans.com – online marketplace for shipping services. You just need to list your load then give all essential details about the delivery such as: place of arrival and delivery, dates or weight of the load. Listing is free and takes less than 5 minutes.
A hauler chosen by you will come for your load when it is convenient for you and deliver the bicycle across Europe. You simply must ensure that a bicycle is ready for shipping. If you don’t want to have this on your mind – you may also ask a transport provider to do this for you.
Preparing a bicycle for transportation with a transport provider
When you want to transport a used bicycle, you need to prepare it for the road. Of course, it is possible to do it by yourself, however you should plan it with care. Well-prepared load guarantees that your bicycle will be safe during shipping. Let’s keep in mind that there are lots of jolts on the road that can damage your bike. Especially when you transport a bike at long distance.
Foremost, find a box that is of the same size as your bicycle. The best option is to use the original box given by the bicycle producer. In case you lost or threw away that cardboard, you may easily purchase a new cardboard at hardware shops or online.
Previous to putting a bike in a box, separate all the moving parts that could be quickly ruined during shipping. Dismantle things such as: chain, lamps or belt. Handlebar must be put in parallel with the frame. Also, it’s crucial to adjust the saddle down. All disassembled things put carefully in a separate small packaging. Don’t lose any part! Wrap handlebar and saddle with bubble foil or simply with some material found at home – the second method is definitely much more eco-friendly.
After placing the bike in a box fill the empty spaces for extra safety. Things such as newspapers, materials or styrofoam are definitely effective fillers. Fillers will make sure that bicycle will stay motionless during transportation. Close the cardboard using a strong strip to make sure that your load will stay where is supposed to.
Transporting a bicycle in a plane
Some people ship a bicycle in a plane. Before you choose that option, read more about airlines rules and costs regarding freight transportation. It may not be the cheapest way of shipping.
Transporting a bicycle in a car
When you possess a car, there is an opportunity to transport a bicycle by yourself. Even thought, it is not a simple task, it is possible. However it is more convenient to hire a transport company, mainly when you want to transport load at long distance.
The trunk of a vehicle is a space where you might transport a bike. For sure, it is possible when you have a mid-size or large automobile. Unfortunately, you must break apart all parts of a bike to place them with safety in the trunk. One more downside of that solution is that your bike will probably exploit all the space in the trunk which is not convenient in case you plan a trip and have other stuff to pack.
This is the reason why m … any people try to move a bike using a roof rack. It helps to save some space in the vehicle and even offers a chance to ship more than one bike. However it is not as convenient at long-distance. Nevertheless, if you go for it, choose the roof rack wisely and set it up following the installation guide. It will not only protect the bike from danger but also your passengers! Bike should stay still on a roof rack. On the road you must pull over if you hear any noises or movements coming from the top of your car. It is important to remember that the safety of other drivers and passengers on the road is also on the line.
