    Package your documents in a cardboard envelope, not paper, so they can withstand transportation within a large courier network (?). Measure the dimensions for your envelope in the same way as you would measure a parcel, using 1cm for anything less than 1cm in size.

    Bike Wrapping Method 

    Although we used a racing bike for the tutorial, a similar process should be used for offroad bikes aswell.

    Step 1: Head to your local bike store and ask for a suitable sized box. Other packing materials such as bubble wrap, brown paper, polystyrene and adhesive tape all come in useful.   

     

     

     

    Step 2: Make sure that you structurally secure the bottom of the box with tape. You do not want the bike to fall out the bottom as our courier picks it up. So ensure to cover all joins and make sure nothing inside can penetrate the outer box.

    Note: If your bike is above 15kgs you should try to make sure that the box has handles.

     

     

     

     Step 3: To ensure safe transit the bike will require some dis-assembly. We recomend removing the seatpost, the saddle, front wheel, pedals and the handlebars from the bike. By reducing the width this will in turn reduce the parcel volume; ensuring that your shipping costs are kept to a minimum.

     

     

     

     

    Note:  Put the bike in first gear.

    TIP:  Try to minimise the bike movement in the box.

     

     

     

    Step 4 : Where parts are touching make sure that they are protected from each other. Secure the dismantled front wheel to the frame and use bubble wrap strips and sandwich bag ties (or cable ties, string, etc).

    Step 5: Secure the handlebars to the frame, use a bubblewrap to protect.

      

     

     

     

    Step 6: By placing something between the front forks this will avoid any compression damage that may occur during handling.

     

     

     

    Step 7: Fully cover the bike with bubblewrap and place it into the box. Try to eliminate sideways movement with newspaper or foam inserts. 

     

                   

    Step 8: The parts removed earlier should be carefully wrapped and inserted into the box with the bike.

     Step 9: The box is adequately packed out so that the bike will not move about. 

    Step 10: Close the box and tape securely to ensure it cannot open during transit.
