Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest container in which you can 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 you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you may want to remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then 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 wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after putting your bike in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize jostling during shipping because the bike will be unable to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be shipped with maximum care.
