Use a Russian doll style packaging, i.e. a box-in-box, to provide additional protection to the manufacturer's packaging.
To correctly package a bicycle you will need the following materials:
- A strong double-layered corrugated cardboard box according to the weight and dimensions of the bicycle.
- A plastic bag.
- Bubble wrap.
- Mouldable foam.
- Polystyrene sheets (at least 10cm thick).
- Rubber padding.
- Expanded polyethylene corners and profiles.
- Packaging tape.
It is very important to follow these instructions so that the bicycle is not damaged:
- The tyres must be deflated.
- Remove the handlebars, pedals and saddle and pack them separately with cushioning material and secure them to the bike's frame with cable ties to avoid potential loss of parts.
- Store the screws and bolts in a plastic bag and tape them to the appropriate part of the bike to make assembly easier once the bike has arrived at its destination.
- Wrap the parts in bubble wrap or preferably mouldable foam.
- Use a double-layered corrugated cardboard box and place polystyrene sheets on all four sides to protect them during transport.
- Make sure that the parts do not touch each other and that there are no gaps that could cause them to move. You can place foam rubber between these gaps.
- Close and seal the cardboard box with packaging tape.
In the event of damage, our Insurance Department will only consider claims where the items have travelled with sufficient protective material. The package must have obvious physical damage (knocked, crushed, punctured, etc.). Any item that travels without respecting the Packing Instructions will not be entitled to any compensation.
