Bicycles

Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original package, try to find a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should detach all the removable parts – for example lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the box after placing the bike in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting during transportation as the bicycle 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 bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
