Bike transport section comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to move it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bike (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller box or wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after placing the bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle transportation

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