Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you need to ship it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best container which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, 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 may want to remove all the mobile elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the container after placing your bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jostling on the road because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not have to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Price of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Other price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
