Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.
Getting the bicycle ready for shipping
The safest box in which you can ship a bike is its original package. 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 parts of the vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, try to acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the removable elements – for example lights or handlebars. Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after placing the bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb any shocks during shipping as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape.
If you want to find a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.
