Bicycle transport subsection will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate package or wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after placing the bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jolting during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bike transportation

Price of bike transportation mostly hinges 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).
