Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you need to transport it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will find a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should detach all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after placing the bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jostling on the road as the bike will be unable to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
