Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you want to transport it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bike (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the box after putting your bike in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jostling during shipping because the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be transported as safely as possible.
