Professional Advice on how to package your bicycle safely

Okay, now that we have done the hardest part of selling your bicycle through BikeChange, now comes probably one of the most important conclusive actions… packaging your bicycle correctly for shipping. Not all courriers are careful handling your packages and bicycles, if packed poorly, can arrive at their new owner ready for the dustbin – and very likely having to reimburse your buyer.

Here are some useful tips … I hope they help!

  1. Visit your local bicycle shop and ask them if they have any cardboard bicycle boxes left, and ask them if they can give one to you.
  2. Buy some heavy duty and ‘fragile handle with care’ tape
  3. A roll of bubble wrap and some spare cardboard boxes to insert into the main carrier box to hold he frame still
  4. Choose a reliable courier that offers insurance on goods
  5. Photograph your closed box
