Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you need to transport it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, try to acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you may want to detach all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the container after putting your bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks during transportation because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Cost of bike transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
