What do we do
FROM WASTE TO PRODUCT
If a bicycle has been left in a public place, it is not allowed to leave the bicycle there for too long. This is why the government in the Netherlands has created certain rules
Enforcement places a warning label on the bicycle stating that the bicycle will be removed within a certain period of time if the bicycle is not taken by the owner. Once this deadline has passed, the bicycle will be taken and stored in the municipal bicycle depot. The municipality now owns the bicycle.
Without initiatives such as Cheapassbikes, these bikes would be destroyed. We go the the municipal bicycle depot and buy those removed bikes in bulk. When the bicycles arrive at Cheapassbikes, they are checked for quality, fully refurbished with only the best parts and registered.
Each bike is individually labeled according to the brand, wheel size, frame size, appearance, brake type and number of gears. So that customers can easily select based on their preferences.
After a pretty picture of the bike has been taken, it will be displayed in our online webshop. Our customers can easily view and compare 300+ refurbished bikes and buy online. We will deliver it for free to their home the next day.
WHAT WE AIM FOR :
Saving 500K bikes from being wasted
and get these bikes a happy new owner before the end of 2024.
Refurbished bike vs Second hand bike
A refurbished bike is the better choice compared to a regular second-hand bike, and this is why:
|Second-hand bike||Refurbished bike|
|Used product||Saved from being wasted|
|Not checked upon quality||Profesionally refurbished and checked|
|No warranty||1 month warranty|
|Pick-up at home||Homedelivered|
|No registration||Anti-theft registration|
THE CONS OF BUYING SECOND HAND:
CHEAPASSBIKES IS A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE
We offer workplaces for young people at a distance from the labor market. What does that mean? Very simple: these young people are not or difficult to qualify for a regular job due to recognized work restrictions. Within our team they are trained as bicycle repairers. A fun job with structure, responsibility and results, but also a safety net to fall back on.
