Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the container after putting your bike in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks during shipping because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bike 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 delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
