If you buy a bike from Dales Cycles you can choose one of two ways to get your bicycle delivered. A standard (free) service or our "premium" service. Please read on to find out the difference between these two services, either of which can be selected at the checkout when ordering your bike.
*Standard bicycle delivery (free)
Our free bicycle delivery is the way Dales Cycles has been sending bikes since we started our mail order service. When your order is confirmed, you will shortly after receive an email from TNT Logistics assigning a date of shipping and a tracking number. TNT can only offer a 9am-6pm weekday service and cannot allocate a specific time of day to deliver your bike.
We go to great length to ensure your bike is in the very best condition both mechanically and aesthetically when it reaches you; this is how we do it. We take the bicycle from its original box in "kit" form, and then our CYTECH qualified mechanics perform a PDI (pre delivery inspection) to bring the bike to a "ride away" state.
When the PDI is completed we disconnect the handlebars, disconnect the front wheel, disconnect the pedals and the seatpost before packaging the bike safely and securely into its original packaging.
When you get the bike, following the enclosed instructions carefully, you will have to reconnect all of the above parts to make the bike ready to ride. This requires some tools and minor adjustments and a basic mechanical knowledge is also an advantage, often a safety check at your local bike shop is prudent after building, depending on your mechanical knowledge.
*Saturday delivery can be arranged at extra cost, please call for details. Highlands & Islands, N Ireland & Isle of Man exceptions & surcharges apply.
Optional £20 premium bicycle delivery (free with bikes over £1000)
Truly hassle free bike delivery! We take the bicycle from its original box in "kit" form, then our CYTECH qualified mechanics perform a PDI (pre delivery inspection) to bring the bike to a "ride away" state. Then we simply turn the handlebars on the bike and insert it into one of our custom made bikes boxes for shipping to you.
When you receive the bike, simply open box at the end marked front, take out the cardboard front wheel retainer and pull the bike out. Once the bike is free of the box, simply attach the non drive side pedal, turn and tighten the handlebars and ride off into the sunset!
If you follow the instructions on the side of your box, it should literally take no more than 2 minutes to make your bike ready to ride.
When your order is confirmed, you will shortly after receive an email from TNT Logistics assigning a date of shipping and a tracking number. TNT can only offer a 9am-6pm weekday service and cannot allocate a specific time of day to deliver your bike.
