Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original box, try to find a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the box, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate package or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding elements (like gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space left in the package after placing your bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to absorb jolting on the road as the bike will not be able to move around inside the container. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you want to find a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you do not have to provide the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bike will be shipped as safely as possible.
