Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest box which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the removable parts – like lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller box or enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after placing your bike in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting during shipping because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
