Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you ought to ship it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the removable elements – such as lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller package or wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after placing the bike in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb any shocks during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, 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 bicycle shipping

Cost of bike transportation mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
