Bicycles

Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you need to transport it home.

Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best box in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should detach all the removable elements – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the container after putting the bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks on the road because the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not need to provide the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
