Bicycles

Bike transport section comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest container in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can transport it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – such as lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller box or wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the package after placing the bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jostling on the road because the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
