Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

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 may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should remove all the removable elements – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate package or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after putting your bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jostling during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
