Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you need to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the container after placing your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jolting on the road because the bike will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
