Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to transport it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller package or wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after putting the bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jolting on the road as the bike will not be able to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
