Getting the bike ready for transportation

The best container which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original packaging. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you may transport it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you may want to detach all the mobile elements – like lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller package or at least enclose them in cardboard and attach them to the bicycle frame. Furthemore you should wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding parts (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any free space remaining in the container after placing your bike in ought to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to reduce jolting during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you want to hire a transport provider to transport your bicycle, you do not need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.
