Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you need to ship it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bike (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will acquire a container 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 placing the bicycle in the box, you may want to remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate package or enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the container after putting the bike in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jolting on the road 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 would rather search for a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Price of bicycle shipping mostly depends on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
