Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you need to move it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to detach all the removable parts – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate box or wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the container after putting your bike in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jostling during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.
