Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bike (e.g. bicycle gears).

Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the mobile elements – like lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is best to store them in separate package or enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters.

Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.
