Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you have to transport it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.
Preparing a bike for shipping
The safest container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you should detach all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles. After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore you should 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 protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the package after placing the bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jolting on the road as the bike will not be able to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape.
If you want to search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.
Cost of bicycle shipping
