Bicycles

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

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best box which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bike (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should detach all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after putting the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting on the road as the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
