Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to transport your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to transport it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest box in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you should detach all the removable parts – like lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate package or enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.
