HOW TO PACK
How to pack a bike in a package
Shipping a bike in Europe or internationally can be very easy if you just follow these simple steps:
- Disassemble the bike by taking apart the wheels, handlebars, pedals and saddle.
- Pack each part separately by wrapping them with bubble wrap and securing them with tape. The bolts should be put into plastic pouches, so they do not get lost during transit.
- Carefully place the parts into a cardboard box previously lined with cushioning materials. Use a string to tie the items together and add more cushioning materials to make sure everything is immovable.
- Use tape to seal the box and reinforce the corners and edges.
