New electric bike sales & distribution centre, now open in Farnham UK
E-bikeshop is proud to announce that we are now open. Our new site is part of the expansion from our two other bike shops and we have been working day & night since the start of the year to get the new sales and distribution centre open in time for the 2014 season.
Although a few weeks behind, we are now very excited to unveil our new centre in Farnham on the Surrey & Hampshire borders. This is a good central location for us with people visiting from all over the UK.
Every aspect of the centre has been well thought out, from the location, parking, layout, design and the environment. Even our complete internal surround sound system provided by.. Guess who?.. Yep – BOSCH!
We are located in the heart of the Surrey hills, making a weekend ride easily accessible. Farnham is centrally located in the UK with London & the major surrounding cities close by. Farnham train station is also on the mainline from Waterloo meaning you can easily reach us by train on the National Rail Network.
For driving we are located just south of the M25 and minutes from junction 4 off the M3 with easy access from the A3 via the A31 as well. We have ample (free) parking on site for cars, motor homes & of course e-cyclists alike.
We have created all of our spaces to be well insulated, reducing the energy needed to heat & cool them. Most of our electronic equipment is energy saving and timed to be only on when needed. Our packaging is recycled. The lighting throughout is LED or naturally lit where possible so it has minimal energy consumption. Electric bikes are a good step forward for both health and caring for the environment and we felt this should also be incorporated into our eBike store.
E-bikeshop is set to be the UK’s largest crank drive electric bike specialists. The new site offers a large showroom and all the facilities to accommodate both customer collections and home delivery via direct dispatch from our warehouse. We specialize in crank drive electric bikes from Europe and stock the whole range of Haibike, Moustache, Lapierre & Raleigh electric bikes.
Director Martin Brown says – “We are very excited to have our new premises up and running after months and months of hard work. We have already been taking appointments and everyone who has visited us so far has been very impressed at the large showroom and good selection of parts and accessories available, in fact the main word we have been hearing down here is ‘Wow!’
This expansion was essential to keep up with the demand of our ever widening customer base. We now sell all over the UK and also ship not just to mainland Europe, but the whole world. Our excellent customer service must be working and word has now quickly spread as we have more eBikes going out of the door than ever.
The demand is definitely growing at a huge rate and our customer age range has now also widened to include people in their 20’s with the main attraction for them being the new eMTB’s. These eBikes have a spec that’s second to none, often when we are at shows people have to take a second look at the bikes before they realize that they are actually electric bikes. The design and specification on these European models is tip top, using the latest in mountain bike components combined with the Bosch electric system.
Our new site means that we can display a large selection of eBikes, from mountain, road, hybrid & trekking bikes. We have a fresh new range of parts and accessories to match, along with all the essential spares & components should they ever be required. We also have new workshop, dispatch & packing bays.
This ensures we can get website orders out quickly, often arriving at the customer’s door fully set up ready to ride within 24 hours. With the extra space we can now hold more stock than ever with a good selection of European bikes ready to hand as the orders flow in – we found this an essential part of our service.
Our new workshop also allows us to quickly service and maintain our existing customers’ bikes and as a Bosch UK service centre we have all the Bosch diagnostics systems ready to hand. We can also make sure that all our eBikes have their suspension systems dialed in for optimal performance for you, the rider. Making sure every aspect of the eBike is set up to your specification is extremely important to how the bike handles over mixed terrain. We have all the facilities in place along with our ATG & Bosch trained technicians.
Along with the new site we have tweaked our website to make it faster, easier to navigate and it now holds more content than ever. The same can be said for our information blog pages which have been optimized with a total overhaul of the front end in the last week, again the content should be easier to see & read and more interactive, with videos, pictures and articles.
We are hosting a number of events throughout 2014. All these dates will go live on our blog pages as they become confirmed, so do keep checking back. Alongside this there’s lots more going on, including action packed riding videos on our YouTube Channel. Also lots more tech articles, reviews, news & talk on our blog.
New on the cards for this year, we will be hosting some organised ‘e-bikeshop owners club rides’… So this season is a pretty manic time for us indeed! For news on all of this please make sure to like our new Facebook fan page.
The first event we can announce is our 2014 Haibike Demo Day on Saturday 10th May. If you are in the market to buy a new electric bike, but you would like to get a feel for the bike both on & off road across the Surrey hills, then please register now. Full details can be found here – 2014 Haibike Off Road Demo Day in Surrey.
The day will consist of an introduction to electric bikes, a ride led by a qualified instructor, then a de brief & coffee on the return. This will get booked up fast with limited spaces available so please register your interest now – it’s set to be a great day!”
We are now 99% there with our new site, we still have some areas to finish off, including the lobby & waiting area, as well as a new walk in shower room for staff & customers that take part in some of our events. But the main thing is that we are open for business.
Oh and last but not least, the coffee machine has arrived! So we have a wide range of luxury coffees, teas and chocolate drinks available. Maybe even a biscuit or two (if the staff haven’t got to them first).
e-bikeshop now has the largest selection of Raleigh, Lapierre, Moustache & Haibike electric bikes in the UK. You can get in touch with e-bikeshop on our contact page here. Due to demand, viewing is by appointment only, all website orders will be dispatched next working day.
