Bicycles

Bicycle transport category will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you ought to ship it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, 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 container the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should remove all the mobile elements – like lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after placing your bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jolting during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

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