Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest container in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging.

If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you should remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate box or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the box after putting the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jolting during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to search for a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t have to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bike will be transported as safely as possible.
