Bicycles

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

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after putting your bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not have to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.
