Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile parts of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to acquire a container that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you may want to remove all the removable parts – like lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to place them in separate container or enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (like gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any free space left in the container after placing your bike in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb any shocks on the road because the bike will be unable to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials required to safely transport your bike – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.
