    Can you not insist on getting a cash payout rather than a gift voucher?

    insist on cash settlement with the insurance company.

    what jam bo said – they can’t force you to accept a voucher.

    Rob,

    It’s been on here loadws….do a search for Wheelies.

    They’ll usually give you 15% less in cash.

    It will be throught the insurance company. I took a mix of 50-50 from Wheelies and cash because one of my bikes was bespoke and another not stocked by Wheelies.

    And the number of bikes you need to buy is not specified – you can spend it all on one bike if you like.

    ah yeah i searched in here not google, just found a thread and looks like i can potentially get full value as they dont sell the frame i want on their website and cant get it in either.

    ok so spoken to insurance and bike was insured for £2000 less excess is an payout of £1650 or I spend £2930 with Wheelies

    Brain dead to not spend it as I would loose over £1250

    Any offer or interest in anew bike from anyone?

    Hi all

    Bit of a strange post this but I had a bike stolen last week and have now been told via my insurance compnay I have £2900 to spend on a new bike.

    I have 3 already and the one stolen was excess in my collection so not really after anything new, so this is a great offer.

    I would rather have the cash but cant I have to purchase a bike or 2 bikes or components etc so I am just seeing if there is anyone looking to buy a bike worth this value – from me brand new but at a discounted rate.

    I.e you want a scott genius 740 650b – prices at £2399 but only have £2000

    Ill buy it and sell it on to you for £2000 CASH

    If anyone is interested please do PM me email is in profile

    This is 100% genuine no scams involved I just need to swap the “gift voucher” for cash

    Cheers

    N + 1 you know it makes sense.

    Was it a named item on your policy? I’ve recently claimed and my insurance referred me to Wheelies I insisted on a cash settlement and they tried offering me significantly less, I refuse and they ended up paying out the full replacement value of the bike.

    Who is the insurance company? I’m looking for a new provider and that sounds pretty good.

    I had a custom built Yeti 5 stolen. Wheelies valued it and I got a full cash settlement.

    Strange they’ll give you more credit than the bike was insured for. Trouble you’ll have is unless you can transfer the Wheelies credit to someone else (through them) then you’ll get warranty issues that will scare a lot of buyers away from bargain bikes of that value (a warranty is worth more than £400 to me on a £2k+ bike). If you can’t transfer it then I’d be expecting around £2-2.3k for credit for you to buy a bike on someone else’s behalf.

    rob13380

    Yeah, wheelies valued it against the spec i gave them and although listed on PRESTIGE policy as £2000 which is what i originally paid for it before re build, wheelies pushed for the full spec value.

    Im looking at getting the 2014 rockhopper evo £1000 to just sell and giant trance 2014 650b to re sell.

    Seems like a sound idea to me

    alternatively if someone wants to give me £2500 they can have their pick from the website upto 3k 😉

    Wheelies couldn’t supply me with a replacement frame and instructed M&S to pay me. No problems

    This, bike was covered on M&S at the time and they handed over pretty much all of it straight to my bank account.

    Could have done without the myther of it being stolen in the first place but it was dealt with very swiftly and smoothly from claim to payout

    so the 2 bikes you have just put up on the classifieds then ? have you bought them, or waiting to see what level of interest there is before ordering ? just wondering as sizes etc not listed…

    FWIW, I’d be looking for a much bigger discount off RRP than that!

    +1. You’d get at least 10% from any decent shop. £500 off £3k isn’t a great deal really.

    esp as a shop would do a similar discount, plus a warranty..

    They are ordered

    both 19″ large

    Fair prices I think

    The warranty thing is worth taking into consideration tho, if I was buying a ‘new’ bike I’d want to be covered and as has been said before most bikes are with the original owner only.
    Think that would affect the ‘valuation’?

    Out of interest why did you order large? Would it not have made more sense to say you could get them in any size then order once you get interest?

    rob13380
    Member

    There are many various things I could have done different better etc.

    Of the 5 sizes available Large is the middle.

    I have always had large bikes and never had an issue selling them so i thought Large would make sense.

    Re the warranty, nothing will be coming registered at all to me – have checked this and they come blank, for me to register on receipt from what Wheelies have told me – this is common place for them as many people just get a bike to sell rather than keep.

    The warranty will be with receipt with manuals all in the box when posted to the new owners.

    Also these are listed on the Ebay and have over 75 watcher on each so fair amount of Larger riders available.

    All im trying to do is raise the cash but thanks everyone for thoughts and advice 😉

    Did you go for a Crave over the Trance?

    Premier Icon granny_ring

    Fair play if wheelies take that situation into account for the warranty then!

    rob13380

    Yeah the Crave over the Trance, LBS shop said buy stuff you would like to own as I know what I like and they know I have good taste ha ha

    I have never liked the Trance’s or Giants in general so opted away from it, plus everyone is starting to join the 29er revolution and not overly convinced that 650b will last!

    My opinion anyway but im sure a lot of people will object.

    With reference to the guy who has removed the posts from the FS forum they are on there way to me today so yes they are owned! and I didnt post an ebay link just mentioned that they are on ebay! Thought that was ok in the rules?
