Bicycles

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

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest box which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the removable parts – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after placing the bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jolting on the road as 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 decide to search for a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
