BIKE BOX RENTAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

By making a booking I accept the terms and conditions set out below by Bike Box Online:

EQUIPMENT

Bikebox Online will provide hard case bike boxes (“bike box”) to customers for transporting bikes. Bikebox Online use 3 different brands of box including Velovault, Bikebox Alan and Polaris Pod Pro. Customers may be request a particular brand although allocation of this is subject to availability.

PAYMENT

The rental fee is based on £6 per day for every day the box is hired out. Additional charges will be added in the event the bike box is damaged, missing any parts or returned later than the date specified in the booking form. A service charge of £6 is payable for each day the bike box has not been returned.

COURIER

We will endeavour to deliver the bike box 2 days before to ensure that there is room for courier delays. There will be no charge for any additional days required to courier box to customers. Early delivery is subject to availability. Payment for hire will still be payable should the courier not deliver in time. Collection and Delivery will be between 9am-6pm unless otherwise specified. Should customers require additional flexibility they can request the following:

Delivery: Additional charge for timed delivery services

Collection: Drop off at a local specified Parcelforce branch

International courier may be considered although in these cases, the customer will be liable for the box whilst in transit and take out additional insurance to cover any missing bike box or delays.

SECURITY DEPOSIT

In addition to the rental fee, a £100 deposit is payable per individual box. Payment can be made by cheque to Bikebox Online where it will be held before returning upon receipt of the bike box. If a cheque is not available then payment can be made by bank transfer, cash or Paypal.

LEASE TERM

The lease term shall begin and end as stated on the booking confirmation form. Alternative arrangements may be made on a discretionary basis with the hub manager. Delays in returning the bike box without prior agreement will result in charges of £6 per day.

COLLECTION AND DELIVERY

A time slot will be stated on the booking confirmation. Many of the hubs are run from owner homes or shops that may not be open during normal working hours. Our hubs try to be flexible but we cannot promise that there will be availability if you come outside of the agreed hours.

CARE AND OPERATION 

The bike box may be used in a careful or proper manner. Please ensure that your bike and components are clean before packing the box. All foam and lanyards must be returned with the box.

INSURANCE

We recommend that you take out cycling insurance that will protect you should the bike box become damaged in transit. We have agreed an affiliate rate with our partner Yellow Jersey Cycle Insurance which offers holiday cover for you and your bike.

DAMAGE

Should the box become damaged whilst in air transit then please ensure you report the damage whilst at the airport otherwise it may invalidate your insurance. Damaged boxes are subject to a charge of £250.
