When shipping a bike, just remove the Wheels and the cockpit. Then put the Axles back into the frame and fork. Look for a large enough box and lower the saddle depending on the height of the box. First put in the Bike and then fit the wheels next to it with some protective material between them. Speaking of protective material, there is a simple saying: the more material the better. So put as much foam, foil and tape as you can on all vulnerable and exposed parts. If you like to know more, watch or video on Packaging a Bike.
Whenever you are shipping a Bike you will need a fitting box. Bikeshops in your area might give it to you for free. After that, it"s only about choosing the right service provider. DHL, UPS and iloxx offer specific bicycle shipment services that also include insurance for your precious cargo. Check their pages for pice information.

We already try to make Bikeflip as secure as possible by offering the option to verify accounts via phone number. When you are buying a product from a private seller you should look out for the blue checkmark. This symbolizes a verified account which will help identifying a user in the case of fraud or other unfavorable events. Before buying from any non verified user you can ask them to verify. The process is free and takes only a few seconds to do in the user profile.
The payment process is up to you and the seller. Bikeflip i not handling any payment right now.

Whenever you buy from a Bikeshop you will get at least the legally required warranty of two years. A lot of brands will grant additional warranty, sometimes even for the full lifetime of a product. To learn more about this, speak to the Bikeshops you are buying from. You can ask them via Telephone, E-Mail, Chat or just walk into their shop. For any warranty claim you also have to contact the respective Bikeshops.
Most new Bikes get delivered preassembled and require only minor steps to make them ready. Primarily, this includes mounting the handlebars, wheels, pedals and seatpost. Since all those parts are relevant to safety you should only take care of it if you know how to do it properly. This also includes owning the right toolset. Otherwise, it"s better to let a Bikeshop handle it. Try finding a Bikeshop in your area.
Before going on a Date you take a shower and dress yourself nicely. Just do the same to your bike. Give it a nice clean and change all those totally worn out parts. A Bike with some decent tires will look better on images and sell a lot easier. If you want to know more, watch our video on How to fresh up your Bike.
