Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you have to move it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the removable elements – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate package or enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should 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 elements (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after placing the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jolting during shipping because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bike transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
