Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to move it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should detach all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate package or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce any shocks during shipping because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.
