Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you need to ship it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.
Preparing a bicycle for shipping
The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the removable elements – like lights or handlebars. After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after placing the bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jostling on the road because the bike will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape.
If you decide to find a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
