Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest container which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after placing your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jolting during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not need to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.
