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

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate package or wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after putting the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting on the road as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved with maximum care.

Price of bicycle transportation

Cost of bicycle transportation mostly depends on the route length and the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is preferred delivery date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
