1. Why did Alb-Store Eislingen become a Van Raam Premium dealer?

We have been selling Van Raam bikes since 28 July 2012. The enthusiasm of the clientele about Easy Rider and Fun2Go convinced me so much. When I got to meet the people at Van Raam in person, I was blown away by the product and the people behind it.

After initial development work in the automotive industry, we started with electrically assisted bicycles in 2010. In 2012, we welcomed our first Easy Rider customer, who still actively supports us with our projects today. In addition to her own Easy Rider, we were able to set up a rental system with Fun2Go, OPair, VeloPlus and Easy Rider tricycles in the district.

In addition to these joint activities, the first barrier-free cycle routes were developed in the district together with the ADFC. Our way also led to the rehabilitation clinic in Bad Wildbad. In the meantime, therapies are being developed there that can be implemented with the tricycle. To make it easier for people with limited mobility to travel as independently as possible, new ways were sought. Our home community, together with a year group, has purchased its own Fun2Go for all interested citizens.

There is a moderate incline in front of and next to the customer car park for doing laps on- and off-road.

A customer wrote me this great message: "I bought an Easy Rider from Van Raam in November 2019 from Mr Wiedemann. The advice was exceptional. I am a physiotherapist myself and chronically seriously ill. I was impressed by how competent and detailed Mr Wiedemann's advice was. His statements are correct and convincing. For me as a medical professional, it was fascinating what knowledge Mr. Wiedemann has in the field of neurology. My questions were answered competently and quickly at all times. I definitely recommend Mr Wiedemann to my neurological patients. I haven't been able to cycle for many years - it's just sensational to be on a bike again. We live at the foot of the Black Forest, I can get everywhere by bike again. Thank you for this Mr Wiedermann."

5. What makes Alb-Store Eislingen unique as a Van Raam Premium dealer?

In addition to the technical qualifications, I have been able to acquire a lot of experience in the neurological evaluation of movement and the mode of action in tricycling. The cooperation with the Swiss Paraplegic Centre, the neurological Sana Clinic Bad Wildbad, the HSH-Lamprecht practice and other therapists enables me to respond individually to the needs of my clientele and to develop adapted concepts for the use of the tricycle. The experiences I have also made with senior citizens' and old people's homes as well as with families with handicapped children have shown me how important the tandems can also be and what joy the customers experience with them.

Insurance

The bicycle can be insured through the household insurance. We do not offer financing options.
