Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to ship it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the removable parts – such as lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle 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 centimeters. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after putting your bike in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jostling on the road because the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

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