Bike transport section comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you want to transport it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (e.g. 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 putting the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate box or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize any shocks on the road because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Price of bike transportation mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
