Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to transport your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you ought to transport it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. 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 bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you may want to remove all the removable parts – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.
