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 want to move it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best box in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally 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. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the container after placing your bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

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

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
