Bike transport category comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you ought to ship it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle 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 can transport it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the removable elements – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate package or enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the box after putting the bike in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize any shocks on the road because the bike will be unable to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
