Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller package or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike 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 centimeters. Any protruding elements (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after placing your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jostling during shipping because the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
