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

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, try to find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – like lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after putting your bike in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jostling during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be transported as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle shipping

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on the route length and the size and weight of the bikes. Other price-defining factor is desired delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
