Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bike. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you ought to ship it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The best container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to find a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate container or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach them 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 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after putting your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jostling during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t have to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be shipped as safely as possible.
