Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you ought to move it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should detach all the removable elements – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate box or enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after putting the bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.
