Bicycle transport section comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your vehicle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to ship it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport section is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.
Getting the bicycle ready for shipping
The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, try to acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you may want to remove all the removable elements – like lights or saddles. Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the package after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jostling on the road as the bike will not be able to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape.
If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be shipped with maximum care.
