At J.H. Retief we realise the anxiety and stress in finalising your pre-Cape Town Cycle Tour race arrangements, especially when it comes to the safe transportation of your bicycle. Based on previous experience, we believe in an uncomplicated and dedicated service delivery.
We remove the front wheel of the bicycle to enable the handlebars to turn sideways.
The front wheel is wrapped with bubble wrap in preparation for transportation.
The rest of the bicycle is then covered with a blanket and boxed in our specially designed carton, together with its separate wrapped front wheel.
The bicycle, front wheel and carton are all labelled with your name and booking number. On handing your bicycle over to us, you will also receive a unique label as proof. This label must be presented during collection of your bicycle.
NB – Due to height restrictions of the carton, it may be necessary to remove the saddle in extreme cases. However, the height of the saddle will be marked before removal, and like the front wheel, be wrap and transport it with the rest of the bicycle in the same box.
Restricted Liability cover against occurrences such as fire, collision, overturning and hi-jacking to the value as declared on the application, but limited to the maximum value of R 20,000.00, is included in the transportation cost. No additional payments will be required to obtain coverage.”
Full delivery and transportation instructions will be provided to each and every participant via e-mail or fax during confirmation of your booking.
