Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to move it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best container in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the removable parts – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after putting the bike in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize jolting during shipping as the bike 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 transport your bike, 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 often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
