Bike transport category comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to ship it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle 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 packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after placing your bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks during transportation because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be transported as safely as possible.
