Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want 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.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you should detach all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the container after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize jolting during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around in the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.
