Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to transport it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest box in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you should remove all the mobile elements – like lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller package or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after placing the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce any shocks during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.
