Bicycles

Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you ought to ship it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest container which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should detach all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate box or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after placing your bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jostling during transportation as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.

Cost of bike shipping
