A few pointers on how to make the most of your bike, surfboard, or snowboard rental
Don't be afraid to ask questions about the best restaurants in town or the best places to ride.
Whether it's the timing or the pick up location of the rental, remember to be flexible. It makes it a lot more fun.
Keep the Ride Safe
The bike is your responsibility while you're renting it. Lock it up securely and keep it inside when possible. Better safe than sorry!
Be on Time
Spinlister depends on meeting up in the real world, which is a lot easier when everyone's on time or a little early.
Send a Message to the Lister
If you have any questions about the bike or the listing, request the bike and just message the Lister from the bike page. They should be able to help.
Verify your Accounts
Listers prefer renting to people who have verified their account with Facebook and Twitter.
Read and Leave Reviews
Reviews provide a level of security on our system. Reading reviews will give you a good idea of which bikes are best to rent and which people are best to rent from.
Following your bike rental, leave an honest review for the Lister and their bike. It'll help the next renter who comes along to find their dream ride and a great experience along with it.
Common Renter Questions
Feel free to email us if you still have questions.
What if I get a flat tire?
Spinlister can recommend repair shops in every active city that will fix any bike problems. It is your responsibility to return the bicycle in great shape to avoid additional charges and receiving a negative review.
What if I want to keep the bike for longer?
Contact the bike Lister through your Spinlister rental page at least 24 hours before the return time to see if you can keep the bike longer. If they agree, you need to notify Spinlister of the change to [email protected]. You may be charged late fees if you do not notify us.
What if I want a bike for the weekend but I have nowhere to keep the bike overnight?
Renting a bike with same-day return may be your best option. If you are comfortable locking the bike outside that is fine but you are responsible for the safety of the bicycle.
What if the bike gets stolen while I'm renting it?
Notify Spinlister right away. We will work with you to determine the best course of action. Remember the bike is your full responsibility while renting it and it may be found that you need to pay to replace the bike. We think that if you were borrowing a bike from a friend you would be similarly responsible.
What if the bike doesn't look or work as advertised?
Your payment will not be transferred to the Lister until 24 hours after you are scheduled to pick up your rental. That gives you 24 hours to talk to Spinlister and the bicycle is not fit to ride.
What if I want to pick up and drop off the bike in different locations?
Communicate with the Lister directly if you would like to change either of the locations. Usually, but not always, Listers are willing to accommodate a reasonable change of location.
What is Spinlister's refund policy?
If a rental has to be canceled, it must be done so within 24 hours after the rental pickup time. We will issue a full refund up until that time. No refunds thereafter.
