Getting the bicycle ready for shipping

If you do not have original packaging, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the container, you should remove all the removable parts – like lights or saddles. After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate box or wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after placing your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to absorb jolting during shipping because the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape.
If you want to hire a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need 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 usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved with maximum care.
