Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you have to ship 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 bike ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will find a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the removable elements – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the container after placing your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
