Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your bike. Also it will be useful if you bought a bicycle online and you ought to transport it home. Other frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will acquire a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the package, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – for example lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after putting your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
