Pricing of the products
People often ask us why we do not list the pricing for each model on the website! Well, it’s not because they are secret, but to ensure people enter into a dialogue with us about their bike ideas and thoughts. This is simply due to the fact that Cargo Bikes are still a novelty in Australia and the collective know-how is limited.
Price is a direct derivative of quality/design and supply chain efficiency. We can guaranty you that we have both topics covered adequately!
Safety is most important factor in relation to price. Our brands and models are all proven European hand-built. Not some Asian knock-off that looks somewhat the same to the untrained eye and could put you or your family at risk down the track.
Top quality and design furthermore ensures that you can comfortably use your bike daily with minimal maintenance or down-time. Maintenance and repairs can be expensive, but with our bikes these costs are virtually non-existent (provided normal use of the product). Over time, that represents a significant saving.
Finally, quality is linked to the re-sale value. As an example, a 2nd hand Bakfiets.nl (if you can find one!) us priced between $2250-2750 depending on the location. That is after being used 3-4 years. A quick calculation shows that you would write off only $250-300 per year.
We believe our products are a conservative investment in your lifestyle. Our business model is aimed at keeping our bikes affordable by having an efficient organisation and logistics.
Retail prices range from $850 (kick-bike) up to $6000 plus for an electric assist CargoBike or Touring Bike including GST depending on the setup.
We are Dutch nationals with a young family. We use our bikes daily and can offer you a wealth of experience and know-how to tap into. We are happy to talk you through the what bike and accessories suit you best!

Good advice, everybody happy!
When you are happy and a decision has been made, we will send an invoice via email. All prices are excluding final assembly unless this has been discussed and agreed with us beforehand. Local freight costs vary roughly from $50 (Melbourne) to $350 (Perth/Darwin). We also ship to New Zealand and other parts of Asia.
In Australia we work with certified mobile bike mechanics in the major cities. They are happy to assemble the bike for you. We recommend that bikes delivered to Cairns, Brisbane, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide and Perth are assembled by our staff at the test-centers.
You can pay by bank-transfer or by credit card for 2.5% extra charge. After receipt of the full payment we ship your purchased bike via a reputable courier. The courier will deliver the package safely to your address of choice. Before you sign off on the delivery please check your cargo for damage. Business addresses are generally cheaper and easier to send bikes to. The majority of our bikes are semi-assembled and require a few tasks to be completed upon arrival. We can organize that to be done for you or connect via your preferred local bike shop.
