Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you have to transport it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate package or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jostling during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Price of bike transportation mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
