Bicycles

Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you should remove all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after putting the bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting during transportation because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not have to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.
