Affordable price and good condition

Used electric bikes are often considerably more affordable than new ones. Models with one riding season behind them as rental bikes are usually only slightly worn and have plenty of life left in them. In addition, discounted prices and deals can be taken advantage of when it comes to used bikes.

Thorough maintenance before sale

With us, used electric bikes have undergone normal wear and tear during one riding season, such as tires, brake pads, and chain wear. Make sure you are informed about the condition of the wearing parts and when they have been replaced. When buying from us, used electric bikes are carefully serviced before they are sold, and worn parts are replaced with new ones if signs of wear are found. This ensures that the bikes are safe and ready for use. With us, you always know in advance what you are buying.

10 most important tips for buying second-hand bike as a company bike

  1. Determine employer requirements: Ask your employer if they have any specific requirements or restrictions for company bikes, such as price limits or brand recommendations.

  2. Budget: Set a budget before you start looking for a bike. The prices of used electric bikes can vary significantly, so it’s important to know how much you are willing to invest in a bike. Often, company bike contracts have a €4,000 limit, and if exceeded, the customer pays the excess amount at the time of purchase.

  3. Check the battery: The battery is the most important part of an electric bike. Check the condition and operation of the battery, as well as its charging capacity. Also, ask about the age of the battery and the number of charging cycles, as the battery’s power will decrease over time.

  4. Test ride: If possible, test ride the bike thoroughly and make sure it suits you and your riding style. Check that the engine works properly and provides adequate assistance at different speeds and terrains. When buying from us, you can also rent a bike for a test ride, and we will deduct the rental price if we end up making a deal!

  5. Check the bike’s condition: Check the frame, tires, brakes, and gears. Make sure all parts work properly and are in good condition. If you notice wear or damage, take it into account in price negotiations.

  6. Service history: Ask the seller about the bike’s service history and any repairs. A well-maintained bike will last longer and cause fewer problems in the future.

  7. Warranty and support: Find out if the bike still has a valid warranty and how it transfers to the new owner. It is also a good idea to check the location and availability of a local service point.

  8. Accessories: You can purchase additional accessories for your company bike under the same contract. Determine what accessories you need and how much budget you need to allocate for them. Check with your service provider if you can buy these from a different store if you can’t get all the necessary accessories from the bike shop.

  9. Compare: Compare different options and bike models. Read reviews and talk to other electric bike riders to get an idea of the bike model’s quality, reliability, and comfort. Comparing helps you make a better choice and find the right bike for your needs.

  10. Contract details: Once you have found the right bike, make sure your company’s bike contract is clear and suitable for both parties. Also, find out how long the contract lasts and the price at which you can redeem the bike at the end of the contract period.
