There’s never been a safer way to buy used motorcycles

Published: 04 August 2010

MCN has launched a unique new service meaning there has never been a better way to buy used bikes. Buy a bike privately through Bikes for Sale and you’ll get: a free buyer’s pack.

Confidence that all private road-legal bikes have been theft checked and free seven-day warranty and breakdown cover from MCN AutoProtect.

Using our unique new service is simple, find the bike you’re interested in from one of the 12,500-plus bikes on our website Bikes for Sale and download a pack which will tell you all the details you need to buy that bike.

Inside the pack is details of the theft check, warranty and breakdown cover plus all the information you need to make it as easy to buy a bike as possible, including buying advice, directions to the seller, safety advice and last-minute buying tips.

MCN editor Marc Potter said: “Buying a bike privately and handing over your hard-earned cash to someone you’ve never met before is always nerve-wracking.

"We’ve taken that on board and tried to take as much of the hassle and risk out of buying a bike privately as possible to make sure that all our readers can buy with confidence.

“Our website has more than 600 bike reviews online, more than 12,500 bikes for sale and more people looking at it than any other motorcycling website in the world – so if you’re buying or selling we’re by far the best place to come and get the full package of great bikes, loads of choice and all the advice you need.”

7-day warranty and breakdown cover
Any private bikes advertised on the site with less than 50,000 miles on the clock, and less than ten years old come with an exclusive free MCN AutoProtect warranty to safeguard you against the costs associated with a sudden mechanical breakdown.

Added to which, in the unlikely event of the worst happening, you’ll also be covered by our free breakdown cover.

Theft Check
Every road-registered bike advertised by private sellers is given a free theft check at the time it is uploaded.

We compare the bike’s registration number with current police records of stolen machines and block any bikes recorded as stolen from being advertised.
