THINGS TO KNOW
- In Basin’s assessment, the bike must be re-sellable (or easily fixed)
- Buy back bikes will undergo a 48-hour assessment period so that we can evaluate the condition of the bike and research re-sell estimates
- Assessments will include the current condition of the bike as well as the parts/labor required to make the bike safe and rideable.
- The customer is responsible for costs incurred to fix the bike for re-sell.
- You can expect any trade-in to be around 50% of the current market value.
- This will depend on things like condition, labor or upgrades, and age of the bike.
- We have the right to refuse any bike offered in trade.
