**Our Take:**

When it comes to purchasing large and expensive items such as mopeds, e-bikes, or scooters, many people may be tempted to buy directly online from manufacturers and/or in the peer-to-peer market. However, buying from a brick-and-mortar small business like Detroit Moped Works is a better choice, both for the customer and the local economy.

By buying from a small business, you can feel good about supporting the local economy and helping to keep small businesses thriving. Additionally, when you buy from Detroit Moped Works, you can be assured that your bike comes fully professionally assembled, tested, and adjusted, with any warranty work related to shipping damage taken care of before purchase.

Another benefit of buying from a brick-and-mortar store is the ability to test ride the bikes before you buy them, ensuring that you feel comfortable and confident on your new vehicle. Detroit Moped Works offers in-store tutorials to ensure that you know how to use your new bike before you take it home, and we are always available for troubleshooting and support.

We are committed to ensuring that our customers are satisfied with their purchases and have everything they need to get the most out of their new vehicles.

Please note that there is no warranty on โ€œas-isโ€ mopeds. However, for any bike over $1,000 that we specifically restored to sell, we will โ€œwork with youโ€ and not leave you high and dry if anything does arise in the first 60 days.
