Bicycles

Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the mobile elements – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle 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 parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after putting the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship the 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 bike will be shipped with maximum care.
