Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you want to ship it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest box in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller box or wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after placing the bike in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jolting on the road as the bike will be unable to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.
