Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection will be useful when you are planning vacation and you need to transport your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you need to ship it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The best box which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you should detach all the mobile parts – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the box after placing the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jostling on the road because the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport your bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved with maximum care.
