Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you need to ship it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the removable elements – like lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate package or wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the container after placing the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks during shipping because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bike shipping

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