Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you need to move it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best container in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the removable parts – like lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements 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 wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after putting the bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jolting on the road because the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
