Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to transport it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place 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.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should 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 (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after placing your bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – 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 the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.
