Preparing a bicycle for shipping

The safest box which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original packaging.

If you do not have original package, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bicycle in the container, you may want to remove all the removable parts – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble foil should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after placing the bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to find a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.
