Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest box in which you can transport a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the bicycle (for example bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bike in the container, you should remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or handlebars.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to place them in smaller box or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure them to the bike frame. Furthemore 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 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (for example bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the package after putting the bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jostling during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the container. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship your bike, you don’t need to provide 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 the bike will be transported with maximum care.
