What do I do if my bike needs maintenance work?
If your bike needs servicing, you can contact one of the Lease a Bike specialist shops. Simply make an appointment by phone or email.
Important: Always state that it is a Lease a Bike bicycle and have your contract ID ready. You can find your contract ID in the Lease a Bike portal under the heading 'Contracts'.
Who carries out the maintenance work?
For maintenance, repair and tyre changes, you can visit one of our 6,000 affiliated specialist bike shops. Would you like to know which specialist shop is near you? Click here for the dealer locator. You can visit any Lease a Bike dealer, so it doesn't have to be the same shop where you bought your bike.
Are any maintenance costs covered?
Depending on the all-round protection package you choose, maintenance costs will be covered. You decide on an all-round protection package depending on your usage behaviour once you have found your dream bike. Your company can limit the choice of all-round protection packages.
You can find the all-round protection package you have chosen in the Lease a Bike portal under the heading 'Contracts' > 'Contract details'.
Have you exceeded your annual budget? Then pay the difference directly to the bike shop.
What costs are covered by the maintenance package?
The maintenance packages cover repairs, annual maintenance and/or service work caused by wear and tear that affect the safety of use or the functionality of the leased bike. In addition, your company bike is covered by annual inspections and wear-and-tear repairs that are necessary for operational safety. The repair of damage is not covered by the maintenance package and is paid by the damage protection coverage. Read more about this under the heading of 'Damage and theft'.
As a user of a company bike, you should do your best to avoid loss or damage. Among other things, keep both original bike keys safe and do not leave the bike unattended. This is also important for making an insurance claim. Has your bicycle been damaged or stolen? Here you will find all the information you need on how to proceed.
Is my bike insured against theft?
Yes, all bikes are fully insured. In order for the insurance cover to take effect, your company bike must be locked, but not connected, with a standard brand lock, unless it is locked inside a room. The deductible is always € 0. If your bike is stolen, you will receive a new bike similar to the one you had under the existing leasing contract at a maximum of the same price.
My bike has been stolen, what should I do now?
If your leased bike is stolen, you must first report it to the police. This step is mandatory, as the respective file number is required for the theft report. It is important that you have both original keys in your possession and that you include the frame number when reporting the theft. You can find the frame number in the Lease a Bike portal.
After you have reported the theft, go to a Lease a Bike shop to fill in the theft form together. In the meantime, the bike shop will order a new bike of the same type and quality. Your existing contract continues.
Do I have the right to borrow a bike in the event of damage or theft?

How does the takeover of the bike work after 36 months?
After 36 months, you have the option of taking over the bike for the residual value (approx. 10% of the purchase price). 4-6 weeks before the end of the leasing contract, you will receive an e-mail informing you of the end of the period of use and, if you wish, an offer to purchase the used company bike. After acceptance of the purchase offer, we will send you an invoice confirming the taxation of the imputed income from the purchase in accordance with EStG §37b para. 1 with takeover by us (flat-rate taxation by third parties). You can easily pay the purchase price by bank transfer. After receiving the payment, ownership of the bike is transferred to you.
Am I obliged to take over the bike?
No, you can simply return the bike. In this case, we will conveniently have the bike collected from you or your company.
Can I lease a new bike at the end of the leasing period?
Absolutely! When your leasing contract expires, you can use your order code to order a bike again from one of the 6,000 affiliated specialist bike shops.
