Terms & conditions
Returns, Replacements & Cancellations
We accept refunds and exchanges within 28 days of purchase. Our policy states that you have 28 days in which to return a product for a full refund where goods are unused. After this period we can’t offer you a refund, only credit or exchange would be offered at our discretion. Delivery costs to return the goods to us are not refundable except where the item is found to be faulty.
If a product becomes faulty after 28 days you will be required to follow specific manufacturer warranty procedures, unless otherwise stated. To obtain a full refund within 28 days, you must return the goods in perfect condition. The goods must not be used or damaged - and in the original packaging. If your goods are not in this condition, this could void your return request. If goods have been used, we reserve the right to charge a restocking fee as appropriate, up to a maximum of 30% of the purchase price. Any delivery costs incurred for returning unwanted used goods, for an exchange or refund, will be at your charge.
Please Note: We are unable to cancel, refund or exchange perishable goods such as food or drink.
BuyABike.co.uk is required to provide the statutory warranty against defects and the warranty against hidden defects in accordance with English law, for all items sold on the Website. However, this warranty does not cover problems caused by negligence, damage or inappropriate use of the item by the customer. BuyABike.co.uk draws your attention to defects and problems which can occur with misconfiguration or mishandling of equipment and will not be liable for problems or faults arising from installation, customisation or modification of original parts supplied.
Special order bikes and accessories.
If we have to order in a bike or accessories worth more than £250, and you choose to cancel the order for any reason or fail to collect the bike or accessories within 3 months, buyabike reserves the right to charge a restocking fee of 10% of the value of the purchase and re-sell any items. This is to cover build costs and half of the restocking charge that we would incur from our suppliers.
We will hold a bike until collection for an agreed deposit. If a bike has not been collected within 3 months of the agreed collection date, we reserve the right to return your deposit and re-sell the bike.
