Bicycles

Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you need to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). 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 bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you should detach all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller package or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after putting the bike in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jolting during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved as safely as possible.
