Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you have to move it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). 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 bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should remove all the mobile elements – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after placing your bike in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jolting during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

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