Bike transport category will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to transport it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after placing the bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jostling on the road because the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t have to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
