Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to ship 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 container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bike (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate box or enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the package after putting the bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jostling on the road as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
