Getting the bicycle ready for shipping
The best box in which you can ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle is not brand new, you can ship it without the box but it poses the risk of damaging more fragile elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you are no longer in possession of the original packaging, make sure that you will find a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bicycle in the package the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should detach all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars. After you have detached mentioned elements, it is safest to store them in smaller container or wrap them in cardboard and then attach 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 foil should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (like bolts should be protected with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after putting your bicycle in ought to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize any shocks during shipping as the bicycle will not be able to move around inside the packaging. The last step is closing the box and securing it with wide tape.
If you want to find a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that the bike will be transported as safely as possible.
