Choose the right place to sell your used bike.
You can discuss it from your local cycle shop if it offers an exchange program, sell it on Leboncoin or Ebay, or go through us, The Cyclist House.
The exchange will usually bring you as much money, and the LebonCoin type platforms are the most complicated to handle with phone calls, offers, etc.
Leboncoin vs eBay: Leboncoin is free, but the saying "you get what you paid for" comes into play here. Not only Leboncoin opens the door to more crooks, but the platform also limits the exposure of your bike as it is local.
Ebay opens your bike to a wider audience, which increases the final selling price. However, in most cases, buyers are looking for bargains and you will not get the best price for your bike.
The Cyclist House: Each used bike sold by The Cyclist House is subject to a complete quality assurance process that begins upon arrival of the bike. Each used bike sold as part of the TPC quality assurance process is inspected and a full focus by a team of full-time experienced mechanics. This level of detail and inspection gives confidence to our customers when buying a used bike, and customers are willing to pay more for guaranteed quality. As a result, you eliminate the hassle of the seller who has to deal with an unsatisfied buyer in case of problems with your bike.
