Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you have to ship it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. 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 bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have 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 bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should remove all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after putting your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jolting during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – 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 the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
