EAV and Halfords team up to keep e-cargo bikes moving
The partnership means customers of Electric Assisted Vehicles (EAV) will benefit from the retailers’ Mobile Expert technicians for service, maintenance, and repair
Electric Assisted Vehicles (EAV), a British electric cargo bike manufacturer, has teamed up with Halfords to offer after-sales service, maintenance, and repair (SMR) packages to its fleet customers across the UK.
The partnership will give EAV customers access to qualified Halfords Mobile Expert technicians anywhere in the country, which the firm says will minimise disruption, and ensure that its lightweight eCargo vehicles are never off the road for too long.
The collaboration will support EAV's commitment to its UK fleet customers, which involves “offering the best professional service possible, and encouraging the switch from fossil fuel-powered vehicles to emissions-free eCargo bikes”.
EAV CEO Adam Barmby said the partnership would allow the company to offer SMR services from Halfords, a trusted large company, while retaining its personal approach which is he says is “synonymous with EAV”.
Chris Oakley, Head of Commercial and Business Development at Halfords for Business, added: "We're pleased to announce the partnership with EAV to support their fleet customers with service, maintenance and repair through our Halfords Mobile Experts.
“In line with the Halfords for Business strategy of helping to keep the nation’s workforce moving, this partnership helps organisations move to a future-proofed and environmentally friendly solution, whilst maximising fleet utilisation and demonstrating operational excellence."
Priced from £10,995 ex VAT, the company's EA V2 Cubed has a capacity of 2 cubic metres, and can hold up to 170 kg of cargo.
As an emissions-free vehicle, the company claims it has saved customers over 150,000 tonnes of CO2 to date, compared to a standard diesel van.
