Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on a trip and you need to ship your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to transport it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, try to find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after placing the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb any shocks during shipping because the bike will not be able to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.
