The Pedalworks Part-Exchange Scheme allows you to trade in your current bike against the purchase of a new bike.
We understand that when it’s time to buy a new bike, you very often want an easy way to sell your old one. Maybe you can’t justify the spend without turning your old bike into cash. Maybe you’re running out of space. Maybe you know you just won’t ride it anymore and it needs a new home.
We’re here to help. With the Pedalworks Part-Exchange Scheme, we take the pain out of selling your old bike, and help you find extra value in your new one.
How it works
When you start talking to us about buying your new bike, tell us you’re interested in part-exchange.
To be eligible, your old bike needs to meet the following criteria. It should be:
- A road, cyclocross, gravel or mountain bike;
- Less than 3yrs old and have had an original RRP of £1,000 or more;
- A reputable brand such as: Trek, Specialized, Giant, Cannondale, Frog or Whyte etc.
- A frame size of between small and extra-large;
- Have no major damage
We’ll usually be able to let you know straight away whether it is one we are likely to accept, and give you an estimated value. Don’t forget to tell us if you’ve made changes or upgrades.
Next, drop the bike into the store or book us to collect it when you pay the deposit for your new bike. After a full inspection, we will confirm the price we can pay. The value of bikes that have been maintained and cleaned will be reflected in the price.
If you would like to proceed, we will issue you with a credit to the agreed value against the balance due on your new bike. What could be more hassle-free?
We provide a simple solution which combines a fair price with security, confidentiality and ease-of-use.
