Bicycles

Bike transport section comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you ought to transport it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after putting the bike in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks on the road because the bike 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 find a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
