MANDATORY REQUIREMENTS

Any extension to the initial 6 month loan will be at the discretion of the W2W Manager and subject to a £5 per week price increase. At the end of the loan the user must return the moped to the bike shop that supplied the moped in the same condition in which it was received, (normal wear and tear will be taken into consideration).

It is the user’s responsibility to read and understand the procedures for reporting accidents. Users must, if they are able, exchange contact details with a third party, if involved, and refer them onto the W2W Office. Users must take photographs if possible, of the scene and the vehicle(s) plus details of any witnesses. Users must not admit liability. W2W will investigate all accidents through the appropriate channels. 

  • If the moped is returned to the dealership for repairs due to misuse or accidents that Wheels 2 Work has not been made aware of, then the moped will be confiscated and the user invoiced for the cost of repairs.  

  • Damage – each time a moped is damaged during a loan period, the user will be liable to pay up to a maximum of £250 in damage repair costs per incident.  

  • Theft – the user of a stolen moped which has been securely locked to an immoveable object will be liable for an excess payment of £250 per bike. In the event that a moped is stolen which has not been securely locked to an immoveable object, the user may be liable for the full replacement cost of the moped (approx. £1700). 

  • The moped will be checked for damages prior to being loaned out by Ace Motorcycles.  The user must also sign off any previous damages to avoid being charged for them later.   

  • The user will pay a contribution towards project costs of £30 per week for a 125cc or 50cc moped by Standing Order. The first 4 weeks will be paid in advance before the user will be issued with their CBT and CBT+ vouchers.  

  • If it has been agreed with W2W staff that a client will install a ground anchor after completion of their CBT, failure to provide photographs of the installed ground anchor will result in cancellation of the CBT+, plus loss of up-front fee.    

  • Failure to make regular payments will result in the moped being confiscated.   

  • The user must comply with any confiscation letters sent to them.  The moped must be returned to the scheme or a County Court Judgement Order will be issued.  This will request all of the unpaid loan payments and the full value of the moped and will result in court action if ignored. 

  • Any parking fines or other road traffic offences are the responsibility of the user, a failure to pay these will result in the moped being confiscated. 

  • The user (client) hereby consents for the vehicle to be tracked by the lender (Wheels 2 Work) to aid in the recovery of vehicles that are stolen, missing or otherwise unaccounted for.

  • The user may be responsible for the full cost of the moped in the event of the moped being stolen if it has not been secured to an immoveable object as W2W will not be able to claim on the insurance. 

  • The user must return the lock and both lock and 2 keys to W2W County Durham at the end of his/her moped loan. Failure to return the lock and keys will mean the user will be required to pay W2W the replacement cost of £15.
