Bicycles

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

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a container 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 bike in the box, you should remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore 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 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after placing the bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks on the road because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not need to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
