Bicycles

Bike transport category comes in handy when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your bicycle. You may also use it if you bought a bicycle online and you need to transport it home. Another typical reason for posting a listing in Bike Transport category is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for transportation

The safest box which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the removable elements – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after putting your bicycle in should be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jolting during shipping 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 search for a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved with maximum care.
