The Bike Workshop That Comes To You
We have a completely mobile bicycle workshop and we come to you.
We understand that most people live busy lives and that you haven’t always got the time to go to your local bike shop for servicing.
We offer first class bike servicing at your convenience either at work or home. If you have a knock or squeak one of our bicycle service packages below will sort it out. For a specific issue or for anything else required just ask.
Simply fill out the booking form and select one of our Bicycle Service Packages, if you have a specific issue then just include it when filling out the form, alternatively you can email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We aim to get back to you as soon as possible and arrange the repair/service at your convenience.
We keep it simple, go for one of our service packages below and the callout is included in the cost of the service as long as it falls within the designated service area. For anything else other than a service, a £5 call out charge is applied within the service area. Anything outside of this will be treated on an individual basis.
On arrival your bike will be fully inspected by our qualified bicycle mechanic and we will let you know how much your bike repair will cost before we start work. You are under no obligation if you do not want to proceed. If the bike has to be taken back to the workshop then this will be done at our cost.
Each one of our Bike Service Packages includes our thorough 22 point Safety Check (Bicycle MOT) so you can be confident in the safety of your bike and using our service. All service packages include callout charge and labour. Prices do not include parts unless stated.
Upon return of your bike you will receive a PDI (pre delivery inspection) checklist confirming all the work that has been carried out on your bike, along with the results of your Bike Safety Check.
The Velo Care 22 point Safety Check (M.O.T) will give you peace of mind as to the condition of your bike. No major work will be carried out on the bike however the report generated will highlight any problems or work needing doing. You are under no obligation to have the work (if required) undertaken with us.

Numerous studies have shown that employees who cycle to work are punctual, healthier, more productive and less stressed. If your employees cycle to work - or you have a fleet of cycles to maintain - we have a mobile bike workshop service and we can come to your workplace and provide thorough safety checks and servicing. We have created a service suitable for all cyclists, from the daily commuter to the weekend racer and with our corporate package deals, it couldn’t be more efficient.
Before service day we make contact with your company staff and coordinate the day of service suitable for the employer and the employees. On the day of service, employees bring their bikes to check in with the velo care staff, we will then assess each bike and contact the employee (via their preferred contact method) to give a service quote before any work is carried out on the bike. Once given the go ahead, we'll carry out the service and return the bike to complete the process. We take either cash or card payment supporting all major card schemes available.
Employee Direct Care Program
We deal with the employee directly and they cover the cost of the servicing, no costs are to be recovered from the employer. With group bookings of 5 bikes or more employees will receive a 10% discount on all service packages and corporate discounts on any parts if required.
Employer Subsidised Care Program.
Basic services are paid for by the employer from as little as £25 per bicycle, any further servicing or parts needed are paid for by the bike owner and prices are based on our website service packages. An example of the pricing as below:
If you, your employers or your colleagues are looking to increase cycling at your workplace then having corporate care servicing programme on-site is a great way to promote it. Get in touch at email@example.com for more information on getting our mobile bike workshop service to your workplace.
Geometry, mechanics and what makes things tick is something that has always interested me. Having been a keen cyclist for 15 years servicing family, friends & my own bikes, the opportunity to change careers presented itself and I decided to gain the necessary qualifications to get into the cycling industry.
With cycling in Southampton & the New Forest becoming increasingly popular, the level of service available from local bike shops has not matched the flexibility demanded from its customers. Velo Care was started in 2014 to address this issue and deliver a professional & affordable service for its customers at their convenience.
Whether you want a bicycle service, want to increase cycling at your workplace or require after event care we cater for all and are always more than happy to help.
Thanks for visiting Velo Care & we hope to hear from you soon.
