Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to ship your bike. You may also use it if you bought a bike online and you want to move it home. Other common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the bike (such as bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you may want to detach all the removable parts – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or at least 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 wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the package after putting the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jostling during transportation because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
