Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you have to move it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should detach all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after placing the bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jostling during shipping because the bicycle 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 would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation
