Bicycles

Bicycle transport subsection will be useful when you are going on a trip and you are in need of shipping your bicycle. You may also use it if you purchased a bicycle online and you need to ship it home. Another typical reason for creating a listing in Bike Transport subcategory is wanting to ship a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The best container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, make sure that you will find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should detach all the removable elements – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as 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. Any empty space left in the container after putting your bike in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb any shocks on the road as the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
