When we will return your bike. Upon completion of the service, we will contact you by email to arrange a suitable timeslot to return your bike to the location it was collected from. We ordinarily aim to have your bike ready for return to you within 48 hours of collection, however there may be times when this is not possible. If there is a delay for any reason we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know.
If our driver finds that no one is available to take delivery of your bike at the agreed timeslot, we will contact you to rearrange delivery and may charge you for any storage and additional delivery costs incurred. Upon the return of your bike we will provide you with an aftercare guide with instructions on ensuring the ongoing effective performance of your bike.
Cancellation and rescheduling. We can facilitate rescheduling or cancellation of a collection timeslot at no extra charge provided at least 24 hours’ notice is given to us in writing by contacting us at email@example.com. You agree that by selecting a collection timeslot which falls within the cancellation period set out in regulation 30 of the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 you are requesting that we carry out our services within that cancellation period and you acknowledge that you have no right to cancel a booking once your service has been completed. If you contact us in relation to a rescheduling or cancellation between 4 hours and 24 hours prior to your collection timeslot, we will be entitled to charge you a fee of £10. If no cancellation or rescheduling has been arranged at least 4 hours before your collection timeslot and no one is available to allow our driver to collect your bike at your chosen location within 10 minutes of our driver’s arrival, then we will be entitled to charge you a fee of £40.
If you cancel your booking after we have collected your bike, we will contact you to arrange a suitable timeslot for the return of your bike and we will be entitled to charge you the total cost of your booking.

The guarantee does not extend to any monetary or compensatory claim, in particular relating to consequential losses.
After servicing you will be provided with an aftercare guide – please ensure you have observed the instructions in the guide before contacting us in relation to repeating a servicing. We will be unable to provide a repeat service where any work required relates to non-compliance with instructions contained in the aftercare guide or improper or inappropriate use (in the reasonable opinion of BikeUp).Please note that disputes may be submitted for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform which is available at the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/.
