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

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (for example bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the container after placing the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jolting during shipping because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be moved with maximum care.
