Bike transport section comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you have to move it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the removable parts – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller package or wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after putting your bike in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting during transportation as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
