Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of shipping your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you want to move it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile 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 box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the removable elements – for example lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the container after putting your bike in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jolting during transportation because the bike will not be able to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
