Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to ship it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category 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, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – like lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after putting the bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jolting during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bike shipping mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
