How to pack and send bikes
- For safe bike shipping, it is recommended to disassemble the bike and pack its components into a specialized, freight-approved hard case. Get My Parcel has a specific process for shipping bikes that only applies when the bike is packed in this manner.
Follow these steps to ensure your bike is packed and shipped safely and securely.
- Removal of Pedals and Front Wheel
Most of the time, the pedals pierce the shipping box, so removing the pedals with a spanner is better. You must also remove the saddle and the front wheel using either a quick-release button or a spanner. It is better to use bubble wrap to cover the bike parts and place them in the shipping box. Removing the parts will result in a reduction in the length of the bike.
- Re-Positioning of handlebars
To make your bike more narrow for shipping, turn the handlebars to align with the length of the bike frame. To do this, use an Allen key to loosen the stem and adjust the handlebars. It will reduce the width of your bike and make it easy to ship.
- Be sure to protect the frame and Projected Parts.
If you’re not using a bike case, protecting all parts of your bike, especially those that protrude, such as the wheel axles and handlebars, is essential. You can wrap them in bubble wrap and secure them with tape to prevent any damage during shipping. To cover the bike frame, a practical solution is to use foam pipe insulation, which provides a cushioning layer to protect against scratches and impact.
- Remember to Attach the loose parts to the main frame.
It is important to attach the loose parts to the main frame. One way to do this is by wrapping tape around the parts to keep them in place and not letting the tape stick to the paintwork. Alternatively, you can tie the loose parts to the frame with sturdy string or cable ties. It will help ensure that everything arrives safely and securely at its destination.
- Placing of the Bike
Put your bike into a sturdy, double-walled cardboard box, and ensure all bike parts are included.
- Fill the empty spaces in the box.
Fill all empty spaces between the bike and the box’s walls with padding materials, such as bubble wrap, packaging peanuts, or crumpled newspaper. That will help to secure the bike and protect it from any impact or jostling during transit.
- Place your order and seal the box.
To Place an order for your shipment, you’ll need to provide your collection and delivery addresses, as well as the size and weight of the package. Once you’ve made the booking, you can print all the necessary documentation, including an address label, a backup label, and any customs information required for your destination. Before sealing the box, place a backup copy of the address label for added security.
Seal the box securely using several pieces of tape to reinforce the edges. Apply the tape in a way that doubles back on itself, which provides extra strength to the seal.
- Attach all the required documents securely to the package.
Attach all required documentation securely to the front of the box, including your address label and any necessary customs information. Make sure the address label is prominently displayed and easy to read.
How to measure the Bike
What is volumetric weight?
Our pricing policy is based on the package’s actual or volumetric weight, whichever is greater. For instance, if you are shipping a box with dimensions of 20cm x 20cm x 40cm, its maximum volume would be calculated as length x breadth x weight/5000, which in this case would be 3.2kg. Therefore, even if the actual weight of the box is less than 3.2kg, you will be charged for 3.2kg.
In another scenario, if your box has a volumetric weight of 3.2kg but contains an item weighing 5kg, you will be charged for the actual weight of 5kg instead of the volumetric weight of 3.2kg. To calculate the volumetric weight of your box, please refer to the link provided.
