Bike transport section comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.
Getting the bike ready for shipping
The best container which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles. After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller package or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after placing the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jolting during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape.
If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.
