Preparing a bicycle for transportation
The best box in which you can transport a bicycle is its original packaging.

If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the box the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – such as lights or saddles. Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in separate package or at least wrap them in cardboard and then attach them to the bike frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after placing your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to reduce jolting during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape.

Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
