Preparing a bike for transportation
The best container in which you can ship a bike is its original package.

If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should detach all the mobile parts – like lights or handlebars. Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining 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. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape.
If you want to find a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you do not have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be moved with maximum care.
