Fully Charged has announced the opening of a 10,000 square foot e-bike workshop and electric cargo bike showroom dedicated to servicing London’s fast growing marketplace.
Added to what is one of the largest workshops in the UK, the new site houses a business and family eCargo Showroom, dedicated to companies that are looking to switch to greener methods of transporting their goods, as well as families looking to replace cars. Found within will be eCargo bikes and trailers from the likes of Urban Arrow, Butchers & Bicycles, Tern Bicycles and Riese and Müller.
“It’s essential to offer our clients the very best experience with their e-Bike, and our new site allows us to do just that”, says Ben Jaconelli, Founder of Fully Charged. “Anyone can sell an electric bike, but it’s the rider’s ongoing experience that the team here are focused on.”
The renovation of the SE1-based site has been done sympathetically, using local tradespeople and, where possible, recycled building materials including structural sheets of compressed Tetrapak, which is made from recycled drinks cartons.
“We’ve seen continuous growth over recent years down to a greater awareness of e-Bikes, more reliable product coming to market, increasing urbanisation, rising fuel costs, implementation of congestion charging and low-emission zones and an increased green consciousness, but the pandemic has unquestionably exacerbated the acceleration of the movement,” continues Dan Parsons, Founding Partner and Head of Business at Fully Charged. “The last 18 months has seen customers and businesses looking for alternative modes of transport and higher demand for last mile delivery services. The new site has allowed us to increase our service capacity and cater for the demand to ensure that our growing list of new and existing clients receive the support they need.”
Fully Charged were quick to adapt to life with Covid, offering virtual appointments, contact-free e-Bike deliveries and test rides, plus managed a successful campaign to put e-Bikes into the hands of NHS staff early on in the pandemic.
The increased capacity of the e-bike workshop and warehousing further supports the business’ eCommerce endeavours, with home deliveries and test-rides, and can facilitate the growing demand for e-Bikes to be serviced.
