When police bicycles get worn out after hours and hours of use by the fine men and women in blue who keep us safe, police departments usually auction them off and buy new ones.
Kwame in New Jersey helps facilitate police auctions, and he was needed an affordable way get 23 bikes fixed and tuned up before they went to auction.
A friend in Dumfries, VA, could do the work. But Kwame couldn’t afford the time or money to break the bikes down and pack them into bulky expensive boxes the way traditional shippers require.
Kwame turned to Roadie, and posted a Gig for 23 bikes. Within a week, Driver Tom delivered the bikes to the repair shop in Virginia for just $150 – much lower than the bike shipping cost Kwame expected. Soon the bikes will be ready for sale and a new chapter of civilian service with new owners.
