Direct Car Parts and The E Bike Store now have a try-before-you-buy electric bike hire scheme so if you're looking to try an electric bike before buying give us a call. We have a range of demo bikes that you can hire for periods of one day to one week and if you decide to purchase an electric bike after hiring we'll give you a bit of discount off your new bike too.
We stock models that use some of the latest e-bike technology with drive systems that include:
We are also fully trained and approved in the maintenance of all of the above e-bike systems so you can be sure you're supported by E-Bike Experts.
So how do you hire an electric bike from us?
We require two forms of ID from the list below:
Please note that we hold the original documents until the bike is returned.
We also ask you to sign a hire agreement and we take a pre-authorisation using your credit or debit card for an agreed value that depends upon the chosen electric bike. When the bike is returned we inspect the bike for any damage - damage to the bike will be charged based on any workshop time or parts required to repair the bike and to return it to the original pre-hire condition.
We also take a payment for the hire of the bike - some or all of this payment is refundable against the purchase of bike when you return after the hire period.
Our current electric bikes available for hire include:
* Please note this list changes frequently so please call us for latest hire bike details.
PLEASE NOTE: Our hire scheme is purely for the purpose of trying an electric bike before you buy. We do not offer a general hire scheme.
