Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your bicycle. 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 Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the removable parts – like lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the container after placing your bike in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jostling on the road as the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be moved with maximum care.
