Bicycles

Bicycle transport section will be useful when you are planning vacation and you are in need of transporting your bike. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you ought to ship it home. Another frequent reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport category is wanting to transport a bike as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest box in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you may want to detach all the removable elements – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the package after putting the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to minimize jostling during transportation as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.
