Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The best box in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the mobile elements – like lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate box or wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space remaining in the package after putting your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize any shocks during shipping 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 bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.
