Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you have to ship it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bike (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly depends on the route length as well as the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is chosen unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
