Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best container in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have 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 box the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller package or enclose them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after placing the bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jolting during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.
