Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to transport it home. Other typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

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

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved with maximum care.
