Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you want to ship it home. Other frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest box which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should detach all the removable parts – such as lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate container or at least enclose 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 foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the box after putting your bike in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize any shocks during shipping as the bike 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 decide to find a transport provider to ship the bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
