    We will give you a brief verbal estimate of possible problems when you drop your bike off, to give you an idea of what might be needed.

    Agree with you what would be acceptable to you for us to do without your further permission;

    Call you if anything further is needed or unforeseen problems are found, so you have the option to proceed or cancel.

    We don’t round up time or charge for unnecessary work or parts; we just ask for the time spent.

    Many jobs are hard to estimate for and often are grossly overcharged: for example one large chain of bike shops charge £12.50 to fit pedals! – this is usually a two minute job, but could occasionally be longer if the threads were damaged, so we’d normally charge around £3 plus the cost of the pedals.

    Our hourly mechanics’ rate is £55.00 which is the industry standard – but don’t be put off; most jobs don’t take long and we will call you if there’s a problem or we think it’ll be time consuming.

    Other jobs such as headset fitting, tyre fitting, new pedals, cables, handlebars, punctures: all charged at the standard rate.
