Bicycles

Bike transport category will be useful when you are going on a trip 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. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the removable elements – like lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free 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 jolting during transportation because the bicycle will not be able to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t have to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.
