Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you want to transport it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best box which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, try to find a box that will be the most similar 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 package, you should detach all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after placing the bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize any shocks on the road as the bike will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find 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 can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be transported with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike shipping mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
