Bike transport section will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you need to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, try to find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the removable elements – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the container after placing the bike in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize jolting on the road as the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

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