Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you ought to transport it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best box which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jostling during shipping as the bike will be unable 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 transport the bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.
