Preparing a bicycle for transportation
The best container which you can use to ship a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bike is not brand new, you may transport it without the container but you risk damaging more delicate elements of the vehicle (such as bicycle gears). If you do not have original packaging, make sure that you will acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after putting the bicycle in the container the better. Before placing the bicycle in the package, you should remove all the mobile elements – e.g. lights or saddles. Once you have detached mentioned parts, it is best to store them in smaller box or wrap them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and 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 remaining in the box after putting the bicycle in has to be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jostling during transportation because the bike will be unable to move around inside the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape.
If you would rather search for a transport provider to transport the bicycle, you don’t need to worry about providing the materials needed to safely ship your bicycle – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will ensure that the bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
