The nascence of Nippy
Cities aren’t suitable for half-empty vans, especially Bristol. We’ve always thought that. Now there’s a better way. Something which protects air quality, cuts cost for customers, and avoids the hassle of traffic.
Bikes were our first idea – but how do you transport tools and parts? Then we found the answer. Cargo bikes. Weather protected, fully electric and with room for carrying the essentials.
And so, Nippy was born. We’re starting small but we think the sky’s the limit for where he can take us.
A bit about our bikes
Designed in Oxfordshire by EAV Ltd, the bikes can carry 150kg of cargo, with a range of 40 miles and a top speed of 15mph.
They’re made from recyclable and sustainably sourced materials. They can ride in bike lanes. And, of course, they have zero emissions.
What our customers say…
A very efficient outfit with an eco twist. On time, clean, tidy and very professional. Brought a smile to my face as I watched Sam pedal off on the Nippy bike. Highly recommendedMr Wetton, Hanham, Bristol
Our boiler servicing has always been carried out by West Country but this time we were notified that their sister company nippychecks would be carrying out the service. We were delighted when Nippy appeared and Sam explained the plan for an eco solution for the Bristol area! The work was done in the usual professional manner and we look forward to seeing Nippy yearly from now on.Oliver White, Kingswood, Bristol
