Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you need to ship it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the removable parts – such as lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after placing the bicycle in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jolting during transportation as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be moved as safely as possible.
