Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

The safest box in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may ship it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate parts of the vehicle (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate box or at least wrap them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the package after putting the bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jolting on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not have to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be shipped with maximum care.
