Bike transport section comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you want to ship it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the container after placing your bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jolting on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

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

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bike transportation mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
