Electric Bicycles for Commercial Use
Lease, Hire, Sales and Scheduled Maintenance for Small Businesses, Corporates and Governments
NZTA and Auckland Council both use eZee Kinetic Sprint 7L electric bicycles to augment their staff vehicle fleet. Staff members book these vehicles for business travel such as to meetings, site inspections, events and more. They save time in arriving there congestion-free and without needing to find parking. There are huge savings in car costs including petrol, parking, maintenance, capital costs and storage. Best of all, the employees enjoy riding the electric bicycles and it provides a great image for these organisations with a large public profile. We regularly visit these fleets to keep them safe and presentable.
All organisations benefit if their staff use active travel such as bicycles to come to work. People who ride bikes to work are healthier, more punctual, have better concentration during the day and are sick fewer days of the year. Another huge benefit is avoiding the massive problems and costs associated with providing staff parking at work. In the Auckland CBD, the average car spot costs $5000/year and has traditionally been subsidised by the company. This is a huge sum, given that most electric bicycles cost much less than that to purchase outright! However, more organisations are waking up to the inequality of this situation, as not all staff make use of these car parks. This, in addition to rising costs of parking and a trend towards consolidating offices into new areas such as the Wynyard Quarter has made an impact on work car parking policies. Added to this, street parking for commuters is becoming more scarce due to increased population and the roll-out of residential parking zones in Auckland. Smart organisations are looking for alternatives to the car for their staff to arrive at work, and we can help in many ways. Some people drive to work in case they need their car during the day. By providing electric bicycles for staff travel at work, employees become free to choose public transport for their commute. We also have Brompton folding bicycles that your staff could use in conjunction with public transport or their car to avoid parking in the CBD. Many Aucklanders simply have not yet discovered what a great option taking an electric bicycle to work really is. We can help identify which of your staff, based on location, have the easiest and safest commutes to work by bike. We can bring electric bicycles to your workplace to show people what they are like (having a staff pool of e-bikes has this extra benefit as well). Depending on the size of your organisation we can also set up a staff benefits program where they can access discounted electric bicycle packages from our store. Alternatively you may wish to purchase them from us and provide them to your staff as a salary sacrifice package in lieu of a car parking space.
