They give their opinion

Super good price, good insurance, responsive to the slightest concerns. I recommend this insurance !

Very satisfied ! I would recommend to my worried entourage.

I am more than satisfied: attractive price, fast approach. I thank the site for simplicity.

In France, and unlike an electric bike (excluding VAE), no legal obligation forces you to ensure your bike

In addition, your home insurance has a civil liability that also covers you when you are by bike. However, this guarantee remains limited as to damage suffered and has no coverage on the flight or breakage of your equipment.

If it is therefore not compulsory to turn to specialized insurers for your road bike, It is advisable to subscribe to a dedicated formula to limit your expenses in the event of a claim. It is the same for electric bicycle insurance or cargo bicycle insurance.

You can thus adapt your guarantees according to your needs for serene trips and every moment assistance when you have to face an unexpected.

Current questions

Where and how do I park my bike to be insured ?

In any non -private place, the bicycle must imperatively be attached to a fixed point by the frame with a conforming padlock.
In a closed private space, your bike is not necessary to be attached to a fixed point, it must nevertheless be padlocked.

What correspond to the franchise and the dilapidation ?

The deductible is the amount that the insurer does not take care of in the event of a claim. It is thus deduced from your insured amount. For Sharelock, the insurance deductible is 10% of the value of the bicycle. It is lowered to 5% if you have done a photo session (up to 72 hours before the loss).

The dilapidation takes into account the age of your bike. It applies up to 1% per month and only takes effect from the 25th month from the date of purchase of the bicycle.
Before that, the amount chosen for the reimbursement in the case of a bicycle flight is the new purchase value of the latter .

For example, for a bike at € 1,200 purchased 5 months ago: in the event of a flight, you have no obsolescence and we will reimburse you 1,200 – (1,200*10%) = € 1,080
For a bicycle at € 800 bought 28 months ago: in the event of theft, you have 28% obsolescence, the bicycle therefore has a value of 800*(1 – 28%) = € 576. The deductible is 10% and we will reimburse you 576 – 57.6 = € 518.4

What is the marking of the bicycle and how to verify that it is activated ?

Bike marking or cycling is compulsory to subscribe to Sharelock bicycle insurance.
Note that since January 1, 2021 bikes have been identified in the FNCUI so if you have acquired your bicycle after this date you must have a marking certificate. Here are the accepted markings:

Is it possible to ensure a used bike ?

All bikes under the age of 5 are insurable.

You can provide a used bike if it has been bought from a professional. It is then the same conditions as a new bike that apply. The invoice will be requested in the event of a claim.

If you have bought your bike from an individual, you must have an act of transfer of property to your name as well as the original invoice of the bicycle transmitted by the former owner. The date of purchase then corresponds to the date of purchase present on the original bicycle invoice.

For information, you must also update the identification number affixed to the bicycle with your personal data.

Are my accessories supported by insurance ?

Sharelock bicycle flight insurance covers fixed bicycle accessories (that is to say that cannot be dismantled without tools) if their value is justified by invoice and they were purchased in the month following the purchase biking. Their value must also be included in the amount of accessories indicated at the time of subscription.

For example, a saddle, an engine, a crutch, pedals, a screwed GPS tracker or mud guards will be assured. A bag or a helmet will not be covered, because non-fix.

Is the photo compulsory ? What is it for ?

The photo taking during parking is optional. It nevertheless allows you to benefit from a more advantageous reimbursement, with a deductible of 5% instead of 10% and to make your insurance effective from the first photo, without deficiency of 3 weeks.
The photo allows Sharelock to check that the insured bike is the right one, that it is well attached and that the anti -theft used meets the safety criteria. These requirements allow us in return to offer a quality service, the fairest prices, and a simplified and transparent reimbursement process in the event of a disaster.
