How To Sell My Premium Bicycle Components or Bicycle For Parts? Glasgow & UK!

Selling your used bicycle can be a great way to free up both extra cash and space in your home. You may even be looking to upgrade to a new model and save some money along the way. But often, the process can be much more complex than it seems. When it comes to sell your bike/parts, Glasgow has a range of different options to choose from. Here’s a short guide to help you get the best deal and most competitive prices. 



  • Sell your bicycle to a Pawn Shop

  • Many established bicycle shops won’t trade in used bikes anymore - so when the average person thinks “how can I sell my bicycle for cash near me?”, they’re often left at the mercy of a pawn shop. While you can usually get a quick deal, it’s the luck of the draw as to whether the shop will have any staff who are knowledgeable about bicycles. Without any expertise in the industry, pawn shops are often unsure of what your bike will be worth, and it’s all too easy to walk away with a bad deal.



  • Selling online

  • There are plenty of sites offering free classified ads, as well as established marketplaces like eBay. However, the sales listing pages can be fiercely competitive, with your advert fighting for space with hundreds of others. 


    Selling online also carries some extra security risks, as you’ll have to make sure the person you’re dealing with is legitimate. While it’s possible to find a different range of buyers, it can take a lot of extra work to make sure you’re getting a good and fair deal at the end of it. Using sites like eBay can be safe, but you’re also at the mercy of customer feedback - unless you’ve sold plenty of items on the site before, you won’t have a high rating, which is always liable to put off potential buyers.



  • Donating your Bicycle to a Cycling Charity

  • If your Bicycle is beyond repair and costs more to refurbish, you can donate the Bike to a Cycling Charity as they can use the Spares and they are funded by the government to refurbish Bikes and sell them at a cheap prices
