Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you want to move it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will find a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller package 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 foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jostling on the road because the bike will be unable 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 transport the bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.
