Bicycle transport subsection will be useful when you are going on a trip and you need to transport your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bike online and you ought to move it home. Another common reason for creating 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, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the mobile parts – like lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the box after putting the bike in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce any shocks on the road as the bike will be unable to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be shipped with maximum care.
