Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you have to ship it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best container in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate box 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 wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks during transportation because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping

Price of bike shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the loads. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
