Preparing a bike for transportation
The safest container which you can use to transport a bike is its original package.

If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to acquire a box that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bicycle in the container, you should detach all the removable elements – such as lights or saddles. Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate container or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle 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 be at least 2 cm thick. All of the protruding elements (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after putting your bike in should be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jolting on the road because the bike will be unable to move around inside the box. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape.
If you would rather find a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t have to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider can do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
