Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you need to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.
Getting the bike ready for transportation
The safest box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you should remove all the mobile elements – for example lights or saddles. Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jolting on the road as the bike will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape.
If you would rather find a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
