Not only do we have one of the largest specialist cargo and electric bike showrooms in the world, we also have a huge warehouse right here in Melbourne that holds all the bikes we can’t fit on the floor.
We firmly believe the investment in a Cargo or Electric bike should include expert advice, the ability to test ride all the options and then the follow-up and support of a dedicated workshop and trained technicians. We can offer advice on good ways to carry children on bikes that is much more fun than driving.
Our workshop specialises in maintaining the bikes we sell, using lifts for the larger bikes as well as licensed testing equipment for the electrical systems.
Cargo Bikes and the Environment
Cargocycles is committed to minimising our environmental impact and we are keen to help you do it too.
We are not car-hating crazy people, we understand some trips can only be made by cars, vans and trucks but we do believe that some of these trips can be replaced with a vehicle with a smaller footprint.
Our bikes can help customers reduce their environmental footprint by replacing short car trips with human and electric powered transport, and we try to bring them to you with as little environmental impact as practical.
Moving objects around the world costs energy. Surface transport (ship, rail, road) is far more energy efficient than air freight.
We use only sea freight to import our bikes, and regular (non-express) surface freight for deliveries, to minimise environmental cost as well as financial cost.
The less freight is rushed, the more efficiently it can be handled. If an express road transport carrier has a choice between sending a half empty truck or missing a “next day guarantee” deadline, the truck will run half empty (probably following another half empty truck up the highway). Having a cargo bike delivered is exciting, but it’s not time critical. Regular road transport is usually just as fast as express, but may occasionally slip a day in transit. We appreciate your patience.
We welcome your comments, questions, and suggestions of how we could improve our business to be more environmentally friendly.
