Why You Should Order Early for Christmas 2022
There is no doubt that the shopping season is starting early this year and the biggest piece of advice that we can give you is . . . order early for Christmas. Is this a selling tactic? No. It is what is required now in this post-pandemic era to lessen your stress of holiday shopping and get what you want in time for Christmas, especially with electric bikes and scooters rising in popularity. Let's look into why this is the case for 2022:
1. Long lead times for electric bikes
Due to the high demand for electric bikes and the limited supply of components, many manufacturers are facing long lead times for their products. This means that if you're hoping to get an electric bike for Christmas, you'll need to place your order well in advance. Order early for Christmas.
2. Difficulty sourcing electric bike components
The global shortage of semiconductors is causing difficulties for manufacturers of all kinds of products, including electric bikes. This means that even if you do manage to place an order for an electric bike, there's no guarantee that it will be delivered on time if you order close to when Santa is supposed to make his yearly trip around the world. So, order early for Christmas.
3. Higher prices for electric bikes
The combination of high demand and limited supply is leading to higher prices for electric bikes. So, if you are planning to buy an electric bike, be prepared to pay more than you would have a few months ago. Don't wait until you are close to the holidays when manufacturers raise their prices thus forcing retail stores to raise their prices too. Hence, order early for Christmas.
4. Limited availability of electric bikes
Due to the high demand and long lead times, many retailers sell out quickly of their electric bike inventory. And, even if you are able to find an electric bike for sale, there's no guarantee that it will be the model or brand that you want. So, if you really want a particular bike for that special gift, order early for Christmas.
5. Increased competition for electric bike chargers
With more people riding electric bikes, there is increased competition for electric bike chargers and batteries. If you are purchasing a new bike, scooter or skateboard, it is advisable to purchase an extra battery at the same time if it is available. You can get longer range when you have double the amount of batteries and it is always good to have a spare one charged (especially in case you forgot to charge the other one). So, order early for Christmas.
