Bike transport section will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to transport it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.
Preparing a bike for shipping
The safest box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should detach all the removable elements – like lights or saddles. Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller package or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the package after placing the bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce any shocks during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape.
If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.
