Bike transport category comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to ship it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.
Getting the bicycle ready for shipping
The best box which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can transport it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – for example lights or saddles. After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate box or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after placing the bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize any shocks during transportation because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape.
If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.
