I have very limited space to store completed repairs and ask that all bicycles are collected on the agreed collection/completion date.
A £1 fee will be added to the bicycle service or repair total invoice per additional day the bicycle is stored with Holmes Chapel Bikes after the agreed collection date, up to a maximum of 30 days.
All bicycles must be collected within 30 days of the service or repair completion date. Any bicycles left in storage after 30 days from the agreed completion date will be sold to recoup service costs.
