Getting the bicycle ready for shipping
The best container in which you can transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike has been used before, you may transport it without the container but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, try to 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 package the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you should remove all the mobile parts – like lights or handlebars. Once you have removed mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller container or at least enclose them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Additionally it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. All of the protruding parts (for example gears should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the box after placing your bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to reduce jolting during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around in the packaging. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape.
If you want to hire a transport provider to transport your bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider can take care of that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually has access to professional packing materials which will ensure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.
