Halfords EAV e-cargo bike

Electric Assisted Vehicles (EAV) has appointed Halfords as its key UK fleet service, maintenance and repair (SMR) partner, giving fleet customers access to qualified technicians across the UK.

Through Halfords, EAV will offer its e-cargo bike customers after-sales SMR packages including at remote locations.

The service offered by Halfords aims to ensure EAV customers suffer minimal disruption if their vehicles are off the road.

EAV CEO and founder Adam Barmby said: “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.” 

He continued: “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, 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.

“This partnership helps organisations move to a future-proofed and environmentally friendly solution, whilst maximising fleet utilisation and demonstrating operational excellence."

Based in Oxfordshire, EAV is already working with several fleet customers, from large household names through to small independent businesses, including 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.

The EAV2Cubed is currently in production at EAV and is being shipped to multiple clients both in the UK and internationally. 

It has a capacity of 2 cubic meters and is capable of holding up to 170kg of cargo weight.
