Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bike (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should detach all the mobile elements – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after putting your bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jostling during transportation because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bike shipping mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is chosen delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
