Bicycles

Bike transport section comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should remove all the removable parts – like lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after putting your bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jostling during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship your bicycle, 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 usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.
