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

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, try to find a container that is the most similar 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 mobile elements – like lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after putting the bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb any shocks during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.
