Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you have to ship it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have 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 container, you may want to remove all the removable parts – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach 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 wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the container after putting the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize jostling during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.
