Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after placing your bike in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jostling on the road as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
