Bike transport section comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you need to transport it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, try to acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – like lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate package or enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the package after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jostling during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
