Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you need to transport your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you need to ship it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.
Preparing a bicycle for transportation
The safest box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should remove all the mobile elements – like lights or saddles. Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after putting the bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jostling during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape.
If you want to search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.
