Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will acquire a container that is 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 box, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after placing the bike in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jostling on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Price of bike transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
