Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.
Getting the bicycle ready for shipping
The safest container which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – such as lights or handlebars. After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jostling during shipping because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape.
If you want to find a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.
