Bicycles

Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to ship your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you want to transport it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, try to find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you should remove all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore 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. Any protruding parts (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after putting your bike in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jostling during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
