Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find 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 container, you should detach all the removable elements – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after placing your bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jolting on the road as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
