Bicycle transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you have to transport it home. Other common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the removable elements – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike 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 have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the container after placing your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jostling during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be transported with maximum care.
