Mobile bike mechanics
Have you been putting off those bike repairs because it's just too difficult to get to a bike shop? If so, you need the services of a mobile bike mechanic.
Most mobile mechanics offer two options for individuals:
- Pick up and drop off: Call to specify a convenient time, date and location for your bike to be picked up. Once your repairs are taken care of, your bike will be dropped off at your convenience.
- House calls: Prefer for the repairs to be carried out at your home? Some mechanics will come to you to fix minor repairs and install replacement parts (usually you need to supply these).
Some mobile mechanics also provide services for employees, usually subsidised in full or in part by the employer.
This subsidised service goes a long way towards encouraging more employees to cycle to work, resulting in healthier, happier staff who aren't adding to traffic fumes, congestion and workplace parking pressures.
Whether you're an employer or an individual, get in contact with one of the mobile bike mechanics in the Bristol and South Gloucestershire area to explore these options:
