Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you have to transport it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest box in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, try to find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you should remove all the mobile parts – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after placing your bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb any shocks during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not need to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bike transportation

Price of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
