We know that buying your dream bike or electric bike isn't a snap decision - that's why we offer free test rides in each of our four London bike shops.
We've made booking a test ride easy with our online system. Start by choosing a date and time that suits you, followed by your preferred location and finally, the model or bike type that interests you.
Once you have purchased your new bike from us, it will be put into the build queue for one of our workshops. Your bike will be built and will undergo a Pre Delivery Inspection (PDI) by one of our expert mechanics. A PDI is a checklist that the mechanic follows to confirm that all parts of your new bike are up to our high standards.
Next, your bike will be prepared for shipping. Padding is used on all the necessary areas and your bike is loaded into a sturdy cardboard bike box. All the necessary paperwork and accessories will be packed inside too. Most of our cardboard and packaging are recycled from incoming deliveries. Bikes are usually delivered by DPD within the UK.
In order to package your bike safely, you will need to do a small amount of assembly when it arrives. It can vary from bike to bike, but usually you’ll need to: fit the front wheel, install the handlebars and fit the pedals. Please note that not all bikes come with pedals - please check the specification on each bike, we’ll include it on there.
We ship accessories Monday - Friday and aim to dispatch all orders within 2 days of receiving them. Free shipping orders are sent with Royal Mail and for bulky items, we may use DPD (at no extra cost).
In stock bikes are usually shipped within 14 days of you ordering as they undergo a Pre Delivery Inspection before dispatch. Bikes are delivered by DPD who provide a delivery window via text message on the day. Delivery of electric cargo bikes costs £40. This service is available to all mainland UK postcodes. Click and collect for electric cargo bikes is free.
Click & Collect
We can arrange for all items to be collected from store. For items other than bikes this usually takes 2 - 4 working days. Bikes can take up to 14 working days to be available. We’ll let you know when items are ready for collection. Please bring a form of ID and a bank card with you when you pick up your order.
We accept returns on orders up to 14 days after the items arrive with you. All accessory returns should be in saleable condition and be sent to our Hackney address with a note which has your name and order number on it. Refunds are processed within five working days.
International delivery charges are estimates and are subject to change. Please contact us for more information. Please note that international accessory deliveries will be handled via Royal Mail and sent ‘Delivered Duties Unpaid’ (DDU). You may have to pay import VAT (and customs duties, if payable) as well as a handling fee.
Tern’s Quick Haul is a best hits version of the GSD and the HSD but at a lower price point. The Quick Haul is rated up to 150kg of weight and like the GSD and HSD, it’ll stand on its rear rack to store. The bike uses a powerful and popular Bosch motor and can be accessorised with a huge number of extra components.
Much like the Tern GSD and Tern HSD electric cargo bikes, the Tern Quick Haul is an aluminium framed, longtail cargo bike with nimble 20" wheels. The bike is rated up to a load of 150kg, 50kg of which can be plonked on the rear rack. And so whilst riding with an adult passenger isn't possible, the Quick Haul will comfortably bring along a child, shopping and some other bits for the ride. Add an accompanying Tern front rack for an extra 20kg of carrying capacity.
A Bosch Active Line Plus motor and 400Wh battery offer up to 65 miles of riding before a charge is needed, more than enough for at least a couple of days riding we'd say! Learn more about Bosch e-bike systems in our journal.
Buy the D8 and there will be 8 gears at your disposal. The fairly wide 11-34T cassette (plus the assistance from the electric motor of course) promises enough riding scope in most situations. The bike's seatpost and handlebars can be adjusted in a trice, enabling the bike to fit rides from 150-195cm. Other specifications of note are the Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, mudguards, lights, chainguard and kickstand.
The Quick Haul is part of Tern's family of electric cargo bikes. Here's how you can choose between the Quick Haul, HSD and GSD.
