Bicycle 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 bike online and you want to transport it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, try to acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jostling on the road because the bike will be unable to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

Price of bicycle transportation mostly depends on how long the route is and the size and weight of the loads. Other price-defining factor is desired unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
