Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you need to transport your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after placing your bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting during transportation as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be moved as safely as possible.
