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.
Learn About Your PurchaseWe recommend taking time to get to know your new bike and accessories. Practice riding in a safe open area, with e-bike power off, until you feel confident riding in more difficult terrain. Practice builds confidence and competence over time. Wear a helmet. Take your time.
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.
