E-cargo bike manufacturer EAV has partnered with high street cycle and motor retailer Halfords, to offer maintenance to support its fleet customers.
British electric vehicle solutions brand EAV works with a number of major brands for their delivery fleets, including Ocado, DPS and Amazon.
The new partnership with Halfords aims to help support EAV’s fleet customers, by giving them access to Halfords Mobile Expert technicians anywhere in the UK, to keep the vehicles rolling.
Through Halfords, EAV will offer after-sales service, maintenance, and repair packages, designed to minimise disruption to fleets.
EAV CEO and founder Adam Barmby 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.”
Based in Oxfordshire, EAV designs and builds all its vehicles at home, which are currently used by a variety of delivery and facilities companies, including Fed-Ex, DPD, Veolia, LaundryHeap and Green Bike.
Local councils including Islington, Hackney, Dover and Westminster also utilise EAV bikes within their fleet to support their commitment to a greener and healthier future.
Chris Oakley, head of commercial and business development at Halfords for Business: “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.”
