Preparing a bike for shipping

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package.

Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the package after placing your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jostling during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
