Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to transport it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the removable parts – like lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after placing your bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jostling during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
