Small Business Owners – Rebate Alert

My comments this month are aimed at small businesses whose activities include in-town delivery/pickup of small-to-medium-size items. You know who you are: restaurants, real estate companies, contractors, retail stores, etc. If you have somebody driving around on a regular basis delivering goods or documents or meals, you have a great opportunity to minimize your environmental impact as well as a chance to generate maximum exposure and goodwill.

Imagine an energized employee moving about town with ease, avoiding traffic and parking woes, and promoting yours as an eco-conscious, forward thinking business. An electric cargo bike is a very cost effective means to move your goods, paperwork, etc. from point A to B in human/electric power-assisted style. In most cases the price of the electric cargo bike will be recouped in less than a year when factored against the costs of operating a delivery car, no matter how efficient the car may be.

The tasteful addition of signage on the sides of a cargo bike creates a rolling advertising tool that will have everyone’s attention as it plies the streets of town in a low impact, easy-on-the-planet fashion. You may even find employees vying for the chance to ‘make the errand run’ for the day. On an electric bike, taking care of a handful of chores around town becomes a welcome opportunity to get out and enjoy some fresh air without it becoming an epic, sweaty workout. You’ll find, as most of my customers have, that traveling around Ashland via an electric bike can actually be faster than driving and parking a car. Never has it been so easy to do so much via a bicycle. You will be amazed to discover the range of large and unique sized items that can be transported with an electric cargo bike.

If all this still isn’t enough to get you out the door and on your way to see me then know this; Electric Vehicles Ashland (EVA) is offering a $300 rebate for any electric bike purchased for business-related purposes! You can contact them online or via the City of Ashland offices.

So, get yourself an electric cargo bike, save a chunk of change right off the bat, and continue to rack up the savings for yourself and our one precious planet with every trip you make around town.
