Whether you are a contract delivery driver or large business owner looking to start a gas-free delivery fleet, choosing the right vehicle is a critical step in your business process.
Delivery tricycles offer significant advantages over traditional bicycles for delivering a variety of goods. Because they are inherently stable, tricycles carry food and other fragile products easily and can handle wider loads than bikes or motorbikes.
Here’s why you should choose tricycles for work:
Better Carrying Capacity
If you plan on delivering items for your business, tricycles can better accommodate your size requirements for a basket or carrying attachment. If you or your deliverers need to carry multiple loads per trip, a large basket or large attachment can be suitable. Similarly, if all of the items you anticipate carrying in a single load are larger than the dimensions of a standard basket, a suitable attachment can be purchased. Certain items, such as hot foods can be covered with insulating bags.
Available in Electric Models
Cycling for a full day can easily tire even the most robust delivery personnel. And not to mention, the risk of injuries.Fortunately, there are electric tricycles for sale that can take much of the strain out of long delivery days.
By positioning the rider upright, electric tricycles can also eliminate joint and posture-related issues common to standard road bikes. While electric models are more expensive than regular ones, a one-time investment can pay itself off relatively quickly by minimizing turnover in your business and allowing you to make a higher volume of deliveries.
Reach More Customers & Cover Longer Distances Without Losing Control Your Routes
One of the most important considerations for anyone delivering goods professionally is the maximum distance you are willing to deliver to. Tricycles can cover long distances so you can reach more customers, and can work with advanced geographic software programs that can help you maximize your profit.
Fuel Efficient & Environmentally Friendly
An adult tricycle is a much more fuel-efficient mode of transportation than a car or truck. Although using one can cut down on fuel costs, physical labor uses energy just like a gas engine.
A workforce that has been pedaling all day will require more food and water than one that hasn’t. Electric versions require less energy to pedal, thus, making your fleet more productive without harming the environment.
Tricycles are energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and physically stable. Whether it is to deliver food, groceries, or other small goods, tricycles are better for your business, environment and your fleet health.
