Important things to look out for when renting an eBike for food delivery!
Posted 1st June 2020. Category: General.
There is a lot to consider when renting an eBike for food delivery; price is generally the most significant factor—the less delivery operating cost, the more income from food delivery. But the price isn't always everything, almost as important are safety, comfort, range and the rental terms.
Generally, the current market price for eBike rentals sits between $70 - $120 per week and varies depending on the quality and age of the eBike. The most challenging thing with eBike rentals for food delivery is the repairs and maintenance costs - they are unknown and can be a bit of a gamble. Thankfully, almost all eBike rental companies include servicing, repairs and maintenance on their fleet, and so the customer bears no risk if there is damage or servicing requirements-this is the case at WalkSmart.
For example, if you have a flat tyre, or the chain keeps on falling off-you can come in and swap with another eBike immediately. This leaves the skilled technicians in the rental store to fix your problem without it becoming your problem. They cover all damage seamlessly.
So owning an eBike is usually more expensive, especially if you are using it a lot because it is not cheap to get repairs and servicing done. The eBike rental store will have staff skilled for the eBike it rents out - all parts will be in stock, and so they can fix or service any issue fast and efficiently.
The durability of a rental eBike is basically guaranteed. If rental companies were renting out poor quality eBikes, they wouldn't make any money - because all the customers would be returning all the time with issues and stop renting immediately. Whereas cheaper online stores selling eBikes can hide and get away without helping customers when they have a problem - because as you know - its easy to hide behind a computer screen.
Safety and Comfort:
Riding around all day long, it helps to have a comfortable seat, a powerful motor and a well-built eBike. An eBike that is difficult to ride and made poorly increases the risk of a user having an accident on the road.
The range of an eBike allows the rider to ride on the most powerful electric assist setting while also having enough battery to conduct enough rides. Removable batteries are another great solution, enabling riders to have multiple batteries and swap throughout the day.
Most eBike places require a deposit or starting fee to join. At WalkSmart, neither is required. Get started with a rental without any upfront cost. Often there is also no minimum term and all damage, servicing and repairs are included in the weekly rental fee - this is the case for WalkSmart.

WalkSmart recommends that you check your local state laws and regulations in relation to using electric scooters in public locations, roads and footpaths. Laws vary state by state and therefore may limit use to private locations only. Each local body is reviewing public electric scooter use, so we expect it to be regulated, but legal in all states within the short term. Feel free to contact WalkSmart if you have any further queries.
