Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the removable elements – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after putting the bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize any shocks during transportation as the bike 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 don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.

Price of bike transportation
