Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you want to ship it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle 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, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you should detach all the removable elements – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike 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 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the container after placing your bike in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize any shocks during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

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