Bike transport section will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you want to transport it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller package or wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after putting the bike in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jostling during shipping because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
