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 would recommend that you take 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 need 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 must 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 instructions on the manufacturer's or retailer's operating directions 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 websites (Amazon, Craig's List, e-Bay, Google, BikeExchange, etc.) or if directions and instructions for proper use are not followed. You may only qualify for applicable Manufacturer or Retailer warranty if you 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. Used, new, and refurbished sales are final, and not refundable or returnable unless noted otherwise on your sales receipt.
Pricing mistakes - If an item is priced incorrectly online, we reserve the right to cancel the order and refund the customer's money because of pricing errors (or for any other reason).
Note: We do not do house calls for delivered bike issues. Unfortunately, we do not have an emergency road repair service – we cannot come and get you. Flat tires, brake issues, and shifting are wear items – you must bring the bike to us for adjustment. We do not pay for others to make repairs.
Sale Items & Closeouts
All items listed on sale or closeout are limited to stock on hand. Occasionally, a bike ordered online may be sold at the same time as an in-store purchase. If ordering online, we will let you know if the item is no longer available. However, we will go back to the supplier and see if there are any items left at the closeout price. Regardless, you will not be charged for a bike that becomes unavailable.
For customized items or special orders placed by the Customer, a non-refundable deposit will be required to place the order. In addition, the Customer will be responsible for any restocking charges or return fees assessed by the manufacturer, if the order is canceled. The customer will forfeit the deposit if the 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 obligation, 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 the vehicle during the first month of ownership. The customer will be required to bring the vehicle to the shop and leave it for the service department to make the health check.Back Orders
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 be, at most, the amount quoted on the original order.
Shipping options are available for most apparel and accessory items. Orders typically ship within three business days 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 the carrier. New and used bicycles are sold as-is, with no returns. Please make certain this is the item you want before ordering.
For bicycles, please allow at least ten 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 days 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 or is lost by the shipper, the Customer must make a claim to the shipper for relief. If the Customer makes a claim or dispute, the Customer must deliver the merchandise or vehicle, at the Customer's expense, to AB's main office location for relief. Shipping charges are non-refundable.
Shipping charges and delivery fees depend 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, many manufacturers are making substitutions because parts are difficult to find. 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 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 and Refund Policy of Online Orders
If there's a problem with something you bought from us, please give us a call within ten 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, we can replace it with the same product, repair parts provided, or repair 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 bring the item to our store or ship it back, but we do not pay for return shipping. Ship authorized returns via insured 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 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. No refunds or exchanges are offered after 30 days. All adjustments will be made i the item is returned as described.
