Preparing a bike for transportation
The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bicycle has been used before, you may ship it without the box but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the bike (like bicycle chain). If you are no longer in possession of the original box, try to find a container that is the most similar in size and shape – the less free space left after placing the bicycle in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the box, you may want to remove all the removable parts – e.g. lights or saddles. Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate container or wrap them in cardboard and attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Furthemore it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after putting the bike in ought to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space is going to absorb jolting on the road because the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the box. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape.
If you decide to hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be shipped with maximum care.
