Sending your bike by post or courier is the best solution for tranasporting your equipment when moving, travelling or selling online. Profit from our knowledge and experience in logistics and find the cheapest way to ship a bike in Europe or internationally with Eurosender. Let us help you organise the safest bike shipping overseas, and check our tips on how to properly pack your bicycle for shipping.
Follow the steps below to send a disassembled bicycle safely by post or courier:
1. Disassemble the bike by taking apart the wheels, handlebars, pedals and saddle. You can do this yourself with tools such as spanners and Allen keys or ask for help at your local bike shop. Pack each part separately by wrapping them with bubble wrap and securing them with tape.
2. Protect the bike frame and protruding parts, such as the wheel axel, by covering them in bubble wrap. Line the cardboard box with cushioning materials and carefully arrange the packed bike parts inside. The bolts should be put into plastic pouches, so they do not get lost.
3. Place the bike frame in first, followed by the protectively wrapped wheels, and then the smaller parts. Make sure there is adequate padding between each part.
4. Use a string or cable ties to secure the items together and add more cushioning materials to make them immobile during transport. Close and seal the box and reinforce the corners and edges.
Each shipment booked through Eurosender is covered by basic insurance, included in the price. For the best protection when shipping your bike in Europe or abroad, we have great low prices for additional insurance – available to purchase during booking.
