Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you need to move it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the removable elements – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the package after putting the bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce any shocks during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.
