Bicycle transport subcategory will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to ship it home. Other typical reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best container which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should remove all the mobile elements – like lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the package after putting your bike in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize jolting on the road as the bike will not be able to move around in the container. 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 have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported with maximum care.

Cost of bike shipping
