2 year anti-theft warranty terms and conditions

Lavelle bike provides you as a owner of a Power bike with a 2 year long replacement warranty in case your bike is stolen.

This warranty is part of our customer care program and we do not make any profit on this subject. We try to provide you with a worry-free ebike experience. As a result this warranty is only liable for the detailed coverage specified below and has no other purpose but to provide a cost free bike in case yours is stolen under the specified circumstances.

 

Warranty description

Warranty is a 2 year long replacement warranty in case your bike is stolen and not recovered during the first 30 days after the theft takes place.

With every bike an ABUS® certified lock is delivered asure security for unsafe places to park. We endorse lock usage in particular when bikes are going to stay at dangerous places for a long time. In public places a certified lock usage is mandatory to be able to claim the warranty as we cannot just cover the bike being left alone anywhere.

Note that when buying a bike from us you are accepting this warranty terms and conditions. As this is an additional service to the bike customer no further liabilities are covered than those specifically included in the terms.

 

Warranty period

Warranty applies since the date of registration of the bike (picking up at shop or delivered to your home) until the last day of the second year.

 

What do I have to do to get the warranty?

It is easy you just buy a Lavelle Bike, your bike is registered to you into our system and from day one your bike is covered.

 

Which is the warranty international coverage?

Warranty covers the whole European Union and will still cover UK after Brexit!

 

What do I have to do in case my bike is theft?

It is mandatory that you go to the Police to make an official report to them. You must send that report to us through the web portal or email us at orders@lavellebikes.com and we will start the recovery procedure.

We highly advise you not to try to recover your bike alone, though your tracking system will show you the location of the bike, it is dangerous for you to recover your bike alone. Let the police corp recover it for you instead.

 

What happens during and after the 30 day recovery period?

If the bike is recovered the warranty is not executed. This means you keep your original bike. In case the bike is recovered with major damage (see detail conditions) the bike will be replaced at no cost.

If the bike is not located after 30 days we will provide you with a replacement bike according to your original setup.

If the bike appears after the 30 days Lavelle bikes will evaluate the status of the bike to decide whether the original bike is to be returned to you or not.

In case a new bike was already delivered, the recovered bike will become property of Lavelle bikes which is enabled to

You get another bike with the same spec you chose when buying from us if your bike does not appears. Lavelle will not provide any cash payment in any case as this is just a bike replacement service with no other purpose.

 

What happens if I sell the bike?

In case you sell the bike you must register your sell with us so that we get written confirmation from the former owner about who is going to be the new owner in order to transfer the warranty to him. Failing to provide the data will void the warranty.

 

Owner’s obligations

To be able to claim the warranty in the event of your bike being stolen, the owner has to register his personal data with us and keep contact data updated on the customer portal.

The warranty is based on the GPS tracker system which is in-built in the bike which means that any damage to the system or malfunctioning will void the warranty. Owner must report any system failure or support us in case we remotely report that the system is not working so that it can be repaired.

The tracking system must be on at customer portal for the warranty to apply.

In case the bike is sold, the owner must report to Lavelle bikes the contact details of the new owner so that the warranty can be transferred. Failing to do that within 7 days of the sell will terminate the warranty period for that bike.
