How much is shipping? Shipping within the Continental US is FREE! Shipping to Alaska or Hawaii is $149.00. This is for FedEx Ground. Please contact us prior to ordering if you need expedited shipping. Please note that due to the size of the box, expedited shipping is quite expensive. Our goal, at BikeShopWarehouse.com is to always offer the best value.
Does my bike have a warranty? BikeShopWarehouse.com is an authorized dealer for each brand of bicycle sold on this site. Each buyer receives a full and valid warranty with their purchase. There are no warranty cards to fill out and send in to the manufacturer. We register each warranty with the manufacturer once payment has been received.
How much assembly is required? You or your local bike shop must install, adjust, and inspect the following:
BikeShopWarehouse.com recommends that a professional bicycle mechanic assemble and test your new bike before you ride it.
Do you ship outside of the US? I'm sorry, but no. Due to contractual agreements with manufacturers we are only licensed to sell/ship in the US.
Can you ship to APO/FPO? We cannot, unfortunately. USPS regulations consider this an export now so we are prohibited from doing so.
How are the bikes shipped? The bikes are shipped FedEx ground and are fully insured.
Do you have to have a signature for delivery? Yes, we do. This will insure the delivery will not be left out for someone to take and it is required by Paypal and most credit cards on orders in excess of $500.00. It's really the best for all of our safety.
Can I have you ship to another location/party? We can only ship to the confirmed address that is in place for your credit card or Paypal account. This is necessary to insure your safety as well as ours.
Do I pay sales tax? We are required to collect and remit sales tax on orders shipping to these states: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin. Buyers in other states can check with their state comptroller to see if they owe use tax or other fees.
What forms of payment are accepted? We accept Amex, Discover, MasterCard, Visa, and PayPal payments.
Is your site secure? Yes. In addition, we will only ship to the authorized address on your credit card or PayPal account.
Are you authorized by the manufacturer to sell these bikes? We are. At BikeShopWarehouse.com, we have a great relationship with all of our manufacturers. We are able to assist them in moving inventory that they really need to sell. This gives us the ability to offer you, our customer, a screaming deal. Everyone wins!
What is the return policy? BikeShopWarehouse.com offers a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. If you are not happy with your purchase for any reason, lets us know. Please email for return instructions.
Why are your prices so low? In the bicycle biz there are always closeouts on various models as well as limited run bikes that we can purchase in large quantities for a very good price (especially since we can accommodate the manufacturer by taking all they have). Then there are 'special make-ups'. These are bikes that were spec'ed differently for a seller. If these sellers, for some reason, are unable to take delivery we will buy them. Overstock bikes are a problem for a manufacturer but not for us. We take them all at a great price and then offer them to you at a great price.
Are your bikes the same quality as in a bike shop? Absolutely ... as noted above, BikeShopWarehouse.com can buy large quantities of units that the manufacturer really needs to sell and get them at a great price. They are the same bikes that would go into bike shops around the world.
Can you help me choose the correct size bicycle? We can. If you would like assistance with choosing the correct size bicycle, please call or send us an email containing your height, inseam and the model bicycle you like. Any additional info you provide help ... age, gender, type of riding you plan to be doing (racing, touring, commuting, trails, muddy & bloody, etc) We're happy to offer suggestions on the size that would suit you best.
How long do you take to ship my bike? We understand that you want to get your new bike quickly. In most cases we will ship your bike within 2 business days (many orders ship in less than 24 hours). We, of course, take care in the warehouse to ship the correct bike in perfect packing. If there is any delay, we will notify you.
How long does delivery take? FedEx quotes up to six business days for delivery to the 'lower 48' states but it does vary depending your location. Of course shipping to Alaska and Hawaii will take longer.
