Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you need to transport it home.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears).

Before placing the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike 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. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after putting the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jostling during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape.
