Bicycles

Bike transport section comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you need to ship it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best box which you can use to ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have 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 bike in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to remove all the removable parts – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the package after putting your bike in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize any shocks during transportation because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.
