Bicycle transport subsection will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to transport it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should detach all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate package or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after putting the bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jostling during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike shipping mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
