Bike transport section comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you ought to ship it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest container which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should detach all the mobile elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after putting the bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize any shocks during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not need to provide the materials needed 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 the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
