Archer's Bikes Agreements
When everything goes right, we are all happy. But, unfortunately, sometimes things are not perfect. Our agreements with you help us both agree on how our transactions and resulting conditions are handled. Ultimately, we want to resolve any issues to everyone's satisfaction. The following are our policies, terms, and conditions that apply to our services provided, rentals, and sales.
Most orders will be ready within one business day. Please keep in mind that some items may require additional processing time to transfer from off-site locations. Other items may require additional processing time for assembly. We will call or email you once your order is ready for pickup. If you need an item right away we ask that you call us to confirm that the product is available before heading over to our store. Unless special arrangements are made in advance, special orders need to be picked up within 15 days or a 10% restocking fee will be charged.
All products are sold under the policies of the respective Manufacturer or Retailer. All assembly on operating directions of the Manufacturer or Retailer must be followed when using any product purchased through Archer's Bikes. Specifically, bikes should be assembled by a qualified bike mechanic to ensure correct assembly. Archer's Bikes will not be responsible for damage or injury caused by improper assembly of products purchased through our website or other website (Amazon, Craig's List, e-Bay, Google, BikeExchange, etc.) or if directions and instructions for proper use are not followed. You may not qualify for any applicable Manufacturer or Retailer warranty if you do not follow their policies for assembly and use. Please consult the Manufacturer or Retailer's policies prior to assembly and use of your product.
Some variations do occur during manufacturing. As a result, appearance, specifications and price are subject to change without notice.
For customized items or special orders placed by Customer, a non-refundable deposit will be required to place the order. In addition, Customer will be responsible for any restocking charges or return fees assessed by the manufacturer, if the order is cancelled. Customer will forfeit deposit if item is not picked up within 30-days from receipt of merchandise by AB, as compensation for handling.
For new Vehicles, the Customer is entitled to a no-cost health check of the vehicle at 30-days (±15 days) and at one year (±30 days) from the purchase date. For Used Vehicles, the Customer is entitled to a no obligation, no cost, health check of vehicle during the first month of ownership. Customer will be required to bring the vehicle to the shop and leave it for the service department to make the health check.
Occasionally, some items are unexpectedly out of stock or unavailable and may be back ordered. If this should occur, we will only bill your credit card for merchandise that is actually shipped. The total shipping charge for orders split into multiple shipments will not exceed the amount quoted on original order.
Shipping options are available for most apparel and accessory items. Orders typically ship within one business day of being placed.
Due to our dealer agreements, some bikes may not be eligible for shipping.
If we ship a bike to you, we recommend that you have the bike assembled by a professional bike shop. Used, demo, scratch and dent, and refurbished bikes are sold as-is.
Due to territory restrictions, customers must take possession of most new bike purchases at the store. Claims for damages due to shipping must be made to carrier. New and used bicycles are sold as-is, no returns. Please make certain this is the item you want before ordering.
For bicycles, please allow at least 10 business days for processing and delivery. Some bikes must go by truck due to weight or other restrictions and may take longer. Orders usually ship three business day after being placed.
We do not ship outside of the Contiguous US. Call for special shipping to Alaska and Hawaii.
If an item arrives damaged due to shipping, the Customer must make a claim to the shipper for relief. In any event, if Customer makes a claim or dispute, Customer must deliver merchandise or vehicle, at Customer's expense, to AB's main office location for relief. Shipping charges are non-refundable.
Shipping charges and delivery fees are dependent on weight and distance from the shop. We only ship within the contiguous United States. Oversized & hazardous materials are subject to additional costs for packing and shipping. Your quote for shipping is shown at checkout but is not a guarantee. Some items may be subject to additional shipping and handling charges.
Disruptions to the Supply Chain
Archer's Bikes cannot guarantee delivery dates. Furthermore, because parts are difficult to find, many manufacturers are making substitutions. These substitutions are to be of equal performance and quality. Furthermore, some paint and color changes may occur. Archer's Bikes cannot guarantee that the specifications, color, or parts will perfectly match the pictures shown online. All substitutions, or changes to color, may occur and without notice.
We protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts all of the information you provide to us and prevents outside parties from being able to "see" your transaction information. When your account information is displayed on your screen, we only display the last five digits of your credit card numbers. You also have the choice of whether or not to save credit card information with us in your Online Account.
Return of Online Orders
If there's a problem with something you purchased from us, please give us a call, within 14 days of receipt of the item to see if it can be resolved. We do not offer an unconditional satisfaction guarantee on any products, however due to our high level of customer service, we will always endeavor to keep customers happy and satisfied. If your product is faulty, at our option, it will be replaced with an identical product, repair parts provided, or repaired at our shop. If we cannot replace or repair the product, we will offer you the option of choosing another product of the same value or, at our option, provide you with a refund for the total value of the faulty product. All authorized returns shipped to us must have a return authorization number to be considered for refund or repair and have the return authorization number clearly marked on the outside of the package or the item will be refused. You can either bring the item to our store or ship it back, but we do not pay for return shipping. Ship authorized returns via Ground UPS or insured US Mail (we do not accept CODs). Used vehicles/bicycles and used merchandise are sold as-is and may not be returned. Damaged or items that cannot be resold as new or not in the original, unopened packaging, or otherwise altered are subject to a restocking or refurbishing fee. Labor and service charges are non-refundable.

Flat tires and punctures are not covered by any warranty or guarantee under any conditions.
For services rendered remotely and for deliveries, some warranties may apply to the vehicle, parts, or work done.
