Bike transport category will be useful when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, 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 smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after putting your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jolting on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. 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 need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
