Getting the bike ready for shipping
The safest box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package.

Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to detach all the mobile parts – for example lights or saddles. After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and 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 wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (such as gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the box after putting the bike in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to absorb any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape.
