Bicycles

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

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you should remove all the removable elements – like lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate box or enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the container after putting the bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize any shocks during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
