Bicycle transport subsection will be useful when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you have to move it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you should remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after placing the 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 inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

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