Missing Item

From time to time goods get lost in the postal system. It doesn’t happen often but when it does we know it’s frustrating. We ask you to remain patient for 21 business days folowing despatch – by all means let us know if you suspect it has gone missing before this time has elapsed. If after 21 business days your goods have still not arrived then we can either refund you all costs incurred or send a replacement (if it is in stock). If you do not inform us of missing goods within 30 days of purchase we cannot refund or replace any goods.

Damaged Goods or Items Missing from Order

When you receive your goods please check them very carefully. You must inform us within 7 days of receipt of goods of any damage or any items that are missing from your order. We cannot accept any responsibility for damage or missing items claims outside this time limit.


We use Paypal so you can bet that it’s secure. You don’t even need a paypal account to pay by Paypal anymore – just a credit or debit card. We don’t store your credit card details or release any of your details to any other party.

We accept cheques for sales over £100.00 Please send your order via our contact form and once your cheque has cleared, we’ll send out your goods. Please make cheques payable to ‘Practical Cycles’. Please do not send cheques for less than £100.00 as they will be destroyed.
