Extend contract

 

Extend contract

You can also choose to prolong the rental period.

  • To extend your rental agreement, make a personal visit to Kattenberg 2.
  • If you can’t make it yourself, it is possible to grant power of attorney to a family member (related in first or second degree). You can request a model of proxy by mail, where you also clearly have to indicate why it isn’t possible to pass by yourself.
  • Your bicycle will get a complete check-up and if needed repairs. This can be done in the central rental location. Brake pads, outer belts, lights and chain are replaced free of charge. This applies only to normal tear & wear and applies only to the bicycle repair site at Kattenberg 2. Any other repair costs will be charged.
  • If the bicycle is considered to be in good condition (again), this will be entered into the rental system. Only then can the lease contract be extended.
