Preparing a bicycle for transportation
The safest container which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the mobile elements – like lights or saddles. After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller package or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce any shocks during shipping because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape.
If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not have to provide 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 usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.
Cost of bike shipping
Price of bike shipping mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
