Why choose electric bikes over push bikes to do delivery?
Our cities have always relied on the work of delivery couriers to keep running. Now more than ever there is a need for goods to be delivered, and jobs are increasing each day. But what is the smartest way to get around as a delivery courier? Bikes are much cheaper than cars or scooters, without any need for fuel or tolls, but what’s the difference between push bikes and an e-bike? Is it really worth getting an e-bike to make deliveries?
With e-bikes, you keep all the mobility and manoeuvrability of a bicycle, but with the added bonus of assisted riding. Ebikes make riding twice as easy as push bikes and particularly come in handy when riding up hills or over long distances. Save your energy with an e-bike and pedal-less for the same distance. The electronically charged motor means delivery just got a whole lot easier for you.
The reality is that however you choose to get around as a delivery courier, the more work you’re able to do the more you’ll be earning. Work smarter, not harder. With an e-bike, delivery couriers are able to make, on average, 30% more deliveries than on standard push bikes. Which means the more deliveries, less effort, and ultimately more money.
If you’re looking to get started as a delivery courier, Zoomo has everything you need to get started. Our bikes can be rented at a very reasonable rate, which means you don’t have to wait until you can buy your own bike to get riding. Plus, you’ll soon make back the cost of renting with the extra work you’re able to do. We also have a dedicated Jobs Board to help you connect with businesses that are looking to employ couriers, so it couldn’t be easier to get going.
