Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after placing the bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jostling during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved as safely as possible.
