Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you need to transport it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you should detach all the removable elements – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after placing the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jolting during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.
