How a bike beats a van (and the Government chips in). The eCargo bike grant scheme.
So, let’s not get too romantic about eCargo bikes and why they’re great. We know it’s dry in a van and that you’ve got a lot of drops to do.
After all, that’s what you do, right? Make deliveries in and around a fairly small area - you know the back doubles and you know where the parking spots are.
But how about that? How about if you didn’t need to use the van for that patch and could release it to go a bit further afield? How about if your business radius grew and it didn’t mean bringing on another van, insurance and driver with a clean license?
How about if you could service the smaller area with anyone, even a part-timer, and let the experienced driver extend your range?
This is a tactical solution to growth that many business owners are choosing. It’s one that we answer with a range of eCargo bikes, for all the reasons above.
eBikes for all reasons
Got a laundry that does home and business pick-ups? There’s an eCargo bike for that.
Got a butchery that delivers? There’s an eCargo bike for that.
Flower shop? Bakery? Printer? Soap business? Catering delivery? Book shop? You get the picture.
If you can recover the VAT on your purchase and get the UK Government’s eCargo Bike Grant, you’re already looking at up to 40% off the list price. After writing it off over three years, an eCargo bike can be amazingly good value. Try doing that with a van.
About Fully Charged
We have been selling eBikes since 2014. What we don't know about meeting the demands of a growing business isn’t worth talking about - because we are one, and we rely on eBikes ourselves.
So, if you think an eCargo bike might be worth looking at, get in touch. We have a range of bikes available to test ride at Fully Charged in Silverstone Park and we can also help you apply for the eCargo Bike Grant Fund.
