We consider the following factors before making an offer for a bike – price when new, demand & supply of make and model, condition of bike and estimated age, components with any wear and tear factored in. We also sweep prices from all online marketplaces, retailers, shops, direct distributors for most up to date pricing.
Unfortunately not, bikes need to be of a certain value to warrant the costs of shipping, mechanical inspection, photography etc. As a general guide we’re only likely to price bikes that cost more than £500 new. We also love classic bikes that have been looked after. We are specialists in road, time trial and triathlon bikes. However we will consider any bike if you are looking to part exchange for one of the new bikes in our partner store Bikeworks, Derby.
No as long as you describe every defect we can still price it if the seller gives us an honest appraisal of the condition of the bike and its components. We reserve the right to seek a full refund if we are not happy with the condition of the bike on receipt – see below.
Cleaning is recommended as it means our quotation price will be maximised. If the bike is dirty it will potentially be hiding issues that need to be priced in to the quote. We service all the bikes upon receipt anyway so servicing is not essential although a well looked after and serviced bike is likely to get a better price.
If webuycycle is not happy with the condition of the bike upon receipt then the seller will be contacted to discuss a possible adjustment of the sale figure or ultimately the bike may be returned and we will seek a full refund. The seller will be responsible for any courier costs that may have been incurred in the process. It is therefore essential that the seller provides an accurate detailed description of the bike at the point of sale.
