Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to ship it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should detach all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the container after placing your bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb any shocks during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
