Bicycle transport subcategory 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 bought a bicycle online and you ought to move it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a container 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 you place the bike in the box, you should remove all the removable elements – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller box or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after putting the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the container and securing 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 needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bicycle shipping

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