Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you ought to transport it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best box which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can transport it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you should detach all the removable elements – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the container after putting the bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize jolting during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.
