Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to transport it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after putting your bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jolting during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
