Bike transport section comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you have to ship it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you may want to remove all the removable parts – such as lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the container after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize jolting on the road because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not have 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 ensure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
