maybe more....

if they are doing the transporting and wheel removal/refitting.....best to take the wheel out yourself and take it to the workshop...even if you have to go by bus.....always best to minimise labour costs with vehicles...need a new bulb?take it out yourself and go and buy one like it (from a car shop).etc...:smile

Its worth doing yourself

if you can and just taking a loose wheel. Normally it costs me about 7 -10 quid if i take a loose wheel and my own tyre that includes balancing. If they transporting the bike you may be able to buy the tools with the cost you save from them not doing that then you have the tools forever.

put a socket set on your Christmas list. Once you have one you will have it for always. They never wear out and save you ££££

I am with davemdixon gets some tools on your  Christmas list. My mum bought me some when i were 16, thought to my self i never going to use them. But now it one of the best presents i ever had :smile i even used them to take the rear wheel of my 125 couple of years ago( puncture ). it cost me £5 to get it fixed, the company were not interested if the wheel were still on the bike.

paddock stands....

are adjustable....so if you buy one it should fit any future bike you get....20 quid for a rear one.Jawa, what would you do if it was a push bike?.....get a mate to help you put it on it's head(on something soft) slacken off the adjusters (10&12 mm open ended spanners) and loosen the spindle(maybe 20& 22mm sockets).p.s..mole grips should be in every ones tool box.

I always look at bike maintenance in the perspective of 'I'm in the desert,miles from anywhere,what the f***************.do I do?...well I bodge it...a pair of mole grips are your second 'any size' spanner.(even on axle nuts).Gaffer tape will support anything.Cable ties, cost a fortune,( in sizes you will rarely use) but all those motorway banking tree guards will have re-usable cable ties on them,that you can use to bodge any non heat related fractures.etc...etc...
