Bicycles

Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you want to ship it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you should remove all the mobile elements – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after placing your bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks during transportation because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.
