No expenses, no compensation
You do not have to pay anything when you collect your bike/moped. However, you have to bring the key to your bicycle/moped lock in order to prove ownership. If a bicycle/moped was attached to something (or to another bike/moped), it is most likely we have cut your bicycle/moped chain. The organization does not compensate for broken bicycle locks.
