Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you ought to transport it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.
Getting the bicycle ready for transportation
The best container which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find 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 package, you may want to remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars. After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the container after placing the bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize any shocks during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape.
If you would rather find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.
