Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to ship it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (such as 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 empty space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the container after placing your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting on the road as the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.
