Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you need to ship it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should remove all the removable elements – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after placing the bike in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jolting during shipping because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be transported as safely as possible.
