Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to transport it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should remove all the removable parts – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after placing your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize any shocks during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
