Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you have to ship it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.
Getting the bike ready for shipping
The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the removable parts – such as lights or saddles. Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate box or wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the package after placing your bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks on the road because the bike will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape.
If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
