Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you want to transport it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jostling during transportation because 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 find a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
