Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to move it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the removable elements – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the box after putting your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jolting on the road as the bike will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Price of bicycle shipping mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
