The Alberta Bike Swap is back for 2019 at the Edmonton EXPO Centre. It’s the perfect chance for families to replace outgrown bikes, sell their outgrown bikes and find bikes for the whole family with an affordabl price tag.
How does the Bike swap work?
Bike intake 8:00am – 2:00pm. Bike sale from 2:30pm – 4:00pm. Sellers that are bringing their bikes to the event should know that there is $15 fee per bike, if sold, but you can save $5 off of this fee if you show your AMA card. Bikes must be non-big box store bikes to sell at the sale.
In addition, there’s a 12.5% consignment fee. With the high rate of people attending the event though, it’s likely that you’re going to be able to sell the bike. 90% of the bikes at the show are sold, and sellers are immediately notified when they do sell.
Tip: There are often large lines at this event. To get the top picks of the bike that you want (highly recommended) you might want to consider becoming a volunteer at the event.
Consider donating your children’s bike that are just sitting in the garage. Children’s bicycles are being collected at the event. Proceeds from the Edmonton and Area bike swap will go to local causes.
