Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of shipping your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best box which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after putting your bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jostling during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bike transportation

Price of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
