Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest box in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after putting the bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jostling on the road as the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be shipped with maximum care.

Price of bike shipping

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