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

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller package or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the package after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jolting during shipping because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.
