Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you have to move it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should detach all the removable parts – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after placing your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jostling during transportation because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be transported with maximum care.
