Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best container in which you can ship a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may ship it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you may want to remove all the mobile elements – such as lights or saddles.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller container or enclose them in cardboard and then secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after putting the bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb any shocks on the road as the bike will not be able to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape.

Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved with maximum care.
