HOW IT WORKS
Take your bike (or other Items) to the Mlacak Centre (see times and location above).
When you arrive, there will be signs showing where to go.
PLEASE NOTE: we will take many bike related items; WE WILL NOT accept bike helmets.
If there is a-line up, there will be scouts around who will offer you the opportunity to polish your bike a little, inflate the tyres, remove security-chains / locks - these things all help to increase the chances of selling.
Once you enter the rink area, you will be greeted by someone who will help you set a price for your bike. These people know bikes and will be able to discuss with you why they are suggesting a certain price. They know what sells and they know what people are willing to pay. Your bike may be worth more or less than you think or would like.

If you are bringing a bike to donate, you can by-pass the line; just ask one of the Bike Exchange volunteers or scouts to take it from you. We may sell it this year or next depending on its condition.
PLEASE NOTE: you will not be allowed into the main selling area.
IF YOUR BIKE DOESN'T SELL
If you told us you would donate it, we will load it in our truck and return it to our workshop. Thank you :-)
NB. If you want it back, you should collect it before 12:00 - we'll tell you it hasn't sold when you come to collect your payment. NOTE - we have to exit the building by midday and any bikes/items not collected by then will be deemed to have been donated. We will load these bike onto our truck last - but once we are gone, then so is your bike.
