How to Send a Bike by Courier – Advice from Fox’s Pacier Sprints
Take it Apart
We recommend taking your bike apart if you’re planning on transporting it across the country. Dismantling it is a great way of making sure that every part of your bike fully protected and as safe as possible while in transit. It doesn’t take any time at all! Simply remove the wheels and pedals from the frame and wrap individually in bubble wrap. To make sure that the parts are kept as safe as possible, place a piece of thick/corrugated cardboard between them, then wrap in bubble wrap again.
Bubble Wrap and Box
If you are unable to source wrapping materials, the couriers Glasgow team will be more than happy to provide them. It can be difficult to find a strong and large box which is appropriate! If you have a specialist bike it may be an idea to go around bike shops in the area to see if they have anything free. Another thing we suggest is using polystyrene blocks in order to prevent the frame, pedals and wheels from moving around when in transit.
