Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest box which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, try to find a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – like lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate package or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the container after placing your bike in should be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jostling during transportation as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be moved with maximum care.
