Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 cm thick. Any protruding elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after putting the bike in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb jolting during transportation as the bike will not be able to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to hire a transport provider to ship your bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can help you with that. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
