Getting the bike ready for shipping
The best box which you can use to transport a bike is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (for example bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a box that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after putting the bike in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the mobile parts – like lights or saddles. After you have detached mentioned parts, it is safest to place them in smaller package or wrap them in cardboard and secure them to the bicycle 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 cm. All of the protruding parts (such as bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the free space left in the container after placing your bike in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to minimize any shocks during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around in the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape.
If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be moved as safely as possible.
