Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you want to transport it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.
Getting the bike ready for transportation
The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a container 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 remove all the mobile parts – for example lights or handlebars. After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the package after placing the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going 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 box and securing it with wide tape.
If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be moved as safely as possible.
