Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you want to transport it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.
Preparing a bicycle for shipping
The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles. Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the container after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize any shocks during transportation as the bike 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 would rather search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not have to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
