Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – like lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate box or enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the container after placing the bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved with maximum care.

Cost of bike shipping

Cost of bicycle shipping mostly hinges on how long the route is and the size and weight of the bikes. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
