Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you ought to ship it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a box that is the most fitting 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 box, you may want to detach all the removable parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the container after putting the bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting during transportation because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
