Bike transport category comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to move it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to detach all the removable parts – such as lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the box after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle shipping

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