Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you need to move it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, try to acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you should remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the container after putting the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks on the road because the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.
