Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you have to move it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate package or enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after placing the bike in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going 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 would rather find a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not have to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be transported with maximum care.
