Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box 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 bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate package or enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should 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 (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after placing the bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce any shocks on the road because the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be shipped with maximum care.
