Bike transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you have to ship it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.
Getting the bicycle ready for shipping
The best container which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, try to find a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should remove all the removable parts – like lights or handlebars. Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate package or wrap them in cardboard and 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 foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the container after placing the bike in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize any shocks during transportation as the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape.
If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport your bike, 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 has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
