Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore 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 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the package after placing your bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jolting during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
