Bike transport category comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you want to transport it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you may want to detach all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate box or enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike 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 cm. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after putting your bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jostling during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not need to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – 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 the bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
