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

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should detach all the mobile elements – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after putting the bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
