Bike transport category comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after putting the bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce any shocks on the road because the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Cost of bike shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
