Bicycles

Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you ought to move it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the mobile elements – like lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after putting the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be moved with maximum care.
