Getting the bicycle ready for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can transport it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate parts of the bike (e.g. bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original package, try to find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after you place the bike in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should detach all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to store them in smaller package or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. Any protruding parts (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the container after placing your bicycle in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce any shocks on the road as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be transported as safely as possible.
