1. The Hire to Buyer Agreement

(a)  This is entered into on the peddlemywheels.com website and will become binding once the customer agrees the direct debit form.

(d)  The minimum hire period is one month.

5. Non-payment

(a)  Failure to make a payment that is due will result in a demand for the return of the bicycle and PMW representatives will collect the bicycle and any accessories.

(b)  Any monies due from the customer due to non-payment will be subject to a 7.5% interest charge.

6. Cancellation

(a)  If the customer chooses to cancel the hire period they must inform PMW by email to info@peddlemywheels.com or via the ‘Contact Admin’ tab of their online account they hold with PMW.

(b)  Once notification is received by PMW no further payments are due and no funds will be returned to to the customer.

(c)  The customer must arrange the return the bike by the day their next payment would have been due.

(d)  At an agreed date PMW will collect the goods from the customer’s home. The customer must ensure they are available to return the goods within 7 days of the end of the contract otherwise a further payment will be due.

(e)  Returned goods should be in full working order. Any repair work required for issues beyond what would be considered ‘reasonable wear’ will be charged at market prices.

7. Damages or theft

(a)  The customer must either buy a Kryptonite D-Lock from Peddle My Wheels or own a lock of an equivalent standard before they can take delivery of the bike.

(b)  The customer is responsible for the goods and will be liable for the cost of repairing any damage to the goods.

(c)  The customer should carry out basic maintenance through the terms of their contract which would include keeping tyres inflated, not leaving the bicycle outside in the rain for prolonged periods and after 12 months a basic service must be carried out by a qualified mechanic.

(d)  Theft - the goods are the customer’s responsibility and stolen or lost bicycles will result in the customer having to pay the full amount for the bicycle and accessories less any monthly payments that have been made to date. If your bike is stolen, you need to contact the police immediately to obtain a crime reference number. You should then contact us as soon as possible with the details.


8. Ownership


(a) The goods are under the ownership of Peddle My Wheels until the customer has paid the full amount due for the goods as agreed when ordering the goods through the peddlemywheels.com website. At this point ownership will be passed to the customer.


9. Insurance

(a) Included in the customer’s contract will be personal liability insurance for up to £5M. In order to comply with this the customer must use the goods in a reasonable manner and follow the UK Highway Code.

(b) An additional insurance policy can be taken out by the customer through PMW, with the company ETA. This will cover theft, damage and personal liability. Terms can be found on the PMW website when booking the insurance. Please be aware that the policy will be in PMW's name not the customer's and therefore to claim the customer must immediately contact PMW through the contact Admin button on their account, not ETA.

10. Personal damages or injury

(a)  The customer will be expected to act in a responsible way when using the goods. If minors are using the goods the guarantor (signatory on the Direct Debit) will be responsible for their supervision.
