If any amount payable by the Owner is not paid by the due date, after six months the bicycle will be sold to recover costs of the work carried out.

The Owner warrants that it is entitled to grant a lien, and hereby grants a lien over the bicycle (including all its equipment and accessories) to secure the due payment of all charges arising under this Agreement, including storage charges, interest charges and any additional charges. The Bike Van will notify the Owner when the bicycle is ready for collection or return.

The Owner is personally liable for all amounts payable under this Agreement, regardless of any insurance or other contractual arrangement it may have.

Unless otherwise agreed. The Bike Van will complete the work in a reasonable time. If an estimated or specific time for completion is given by The Bike Van, it will not be liable for any delay due to circumstances beyond its control.

The Owner authorises The Bike Van to order on its behalf any parts or materials necessary to carry out the work.
