Bicycles

Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should remove all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller box or 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 foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed 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.
