Bicycles

Bicycle transport category comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to ship it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you may transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller box or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the box after placing the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize jostling during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.
