Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to transport it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest box which you can use to ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after placing your bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks during shipping because the bicycle will be unable to move around in 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 bike, you don’t have to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.
