Getting the bike ready for shipping
The safest container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging.

If you do not have original package, try to find a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you may want to remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or handlebars. Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller box or at least wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore 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 (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after placing the bike in has to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce any shocks on the road because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape.

Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
