Bicycles

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

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you should remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after putting your bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize any shocks during shipping because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure 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 transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bicycle transportation
