Electric Assisted Vehicles Limited (EAV), the Oxfordshire-based sustainable zero-emissions electric eCargo bike company, has announced a partnership with Halfords as its key UK fleet service, maintenance and repair partner.
Based in Oxfordshire, EAV has already proven itself as an industry leader, gaining fleet customers, from large household names to small independent businesses. These include national delivery and facilities companies such as Amazon, Fed-Ex, DPD, DENSO, Ryde, Delivery Mates, Veolia, LaundryHeap, Green Bike company and EVRI.
This new partnership will ensure EAV’s fleet customers have access to qualified Halfords Mobile Expert (HME) technicians anywhere in the UK. Through Halfords, EAV will offer its customers after-sales service, maintenance and repair (SMR) packages including at remote locations.
The service offered by Halfords ensures EAV customers can minimise disruption and that their vehicles are never off the road for too long. Plus, they’ll be able to maintain the high levels of business efficiency associated with EAV’s lightweight eCargo vehicles.
This latest partnership reinforces EAV’s commitment to its UK fleet customers, offering the best professional service possible and supporting customers in switching from diesel and petrol vehicles to an emissions-free eCargo bike alternative.
Adam Barmby, EAV founder and CEO, said: “Halfords is one of the best-known British brands, so to join forces with them on this project is very exciting. EAV is still a small but growing business, however, we have big expansion plans with our Future Transport Vision range of Urban Specific Vehicles.
“This partnership will allow us to offer service, maintenance and repair from Halfords, a trusted large company, without losing our personal approach that is synonymous with EAV.
“The future of this space is limitless; we are reinventing the urban city formula and how businesses approach their delivery fleet, urban transport operations and last mile strategy.
“By switching to sustainable transport, customers can continue to deliver extraordinary service, while reducing their impact on their local environment.”
Chris Oakley, Head of Commercial and Business Development at Halfords for Business, said:“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.”
Back at the start of December, EAV announced that Islington had become the latest of five leading London councils to choose EAV eCargo bikes to reduce their emissions. As part of Islington’s ambition to tackle the climate emergency and create a net-zero carbon future, the pioneering electric vehicles (EVs) will help the council’s mission to electrify its fleet.
