British electric cargo bike manufacturer Electric Assisted Vehicles (EAV), has appointed Halfords as its key UK fleet service, maintenance, and repair partner.
The agreement will ensure that through Halfords, EAV will offer its customers after-sales service, maintenance, and repair (SMR) packages including at remote locations.
Based in Oxfordshire, all EAV vehicles are designed and built in the UK.
The EAV2Cubed has a capacity of 2 cubic meters and is capable of holding up to 170kg of cargo weight.
EAV’s customers extend to national delivery and facilities companies such as Amazon, Fed-Ex, DPD, Ryde, Delivery Mates, Veolia, LaundryHeap and Green Bike company and Evri.
Local councils including Islington, Hackney, Dover and Westminster also utilise EAV bikes within their fleet.
Adam Barmby, EAV CEO and founder 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.”
Chris Oakley, head of commercial and business development, 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.”
