Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to ship it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.
Preparing a bike for transportation
The best box in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you should detach all the removable parts – like lights or saddles. Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the package after placing the bike in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jolting during shipping because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape.
If you want to search for a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.
