Shipping

Bike24 ships from Monday to Saturday with the exception of public holidays. We ship complete orders only, i.e. the dispatch usually takes place as soon as all ordered items are ready for dispatch. Please contact the Bike24 service team if you wish a partial delivery. Should you choose "cash in advance" as method of payment, the delivery time is extended, since the shipping process will not start before the actual receipt of payment.

Carriers

Depending on destination country, package size, volume and weight, Bike24 ships with the carriers German PostDHL or the German parcel service DPD. The preferred carrier of Bike24 for shipments to private consumers within Germany is the German Post DHL. Deliveries of bulky goods, for example complete bicycles, will be handled by selected forwarding companies.

For return shipments Bike24 cooperates with German Post DHL and Hermes. Large bulky goods like bicycles will be picked up by a forwarding company.

Shipping option DHL Express – guaranteed delivery date

For all items marked with this symbol, which are ordered on business days from Monday to Friday by 3 p.m. (CET), we offer the DHL Express shipping option for selected delivery countries. The DHL Express option is subject to an additional surcharge. It can be selected during the ordering process, provided that all items in the shopping cart offer the Express option. In addition the DHL Express option must be available for the selected delivery adress.

The remaining time for the placement of the order will be displayed precisely in hours and minutes. An order within the EU usually arrives the following business day. Depending on the postal code of the delivery address, longer parcel delivery times may occur. As soon as the postal code is indicated, the exact parcel delivery time for this delivery address is calculated. When registering via the account, we use the postal code of the standard delivery address to calculate the DHL Express parcel delivery time.

The DHL Express option is currently not available for shipping within Germany.


Packing Stations

Upon request we will be happy to send your order to one of the numerous packing stations operated by German Post DHL. Should you not yet be registered as a packing station customer, you need to register once online at www.dhl.de. Always specify the DHL Post Number for shipments to a packing station.

Change Requests, Merging of Orders

The Bike24 team will do its best to fulfill your change requests. Usually such changes are possible until the actual start of the shipping process. If you place several orders at Bike24 within a short period of time, those orders will be merged on your request only. We process each order separately.
