Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory 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 move it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after putting your bike in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jolting on the road as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

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