Private counseling at Van Raam in connection with coronavirus

Due to the current situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19), everyone has to consider each other, and we all have to be extra careful. Many creative solutions have already been devised everywhere. Van Raam has also come up with a creative solution so that it remains possible to come and test an adapted bicycle in our showroom in Varsseveld. The showroom of Van Raam is now open for private counseling. Read on for more information.  


Private counseling at Van Raam in connection with coronavirus

Private counseling for an adapted bike

Private counseling at Van Raam means that four test rides or fittings take place with a technical advisor in our showroom. During this test drive, the four appointments take place in a different part of the showroom, so that sufficient distance can be kept and everyone can comply with the measures of the RIVM (Dutch State Institute for Public Health).

The showroom will be open for private counseling by appointment. You can make an appointment in advance by phone. On working days from Monday to Friday there are certain times at which a test ride can be scheduled.  

The available times are as following:

Monday to Thursday:
  • 08.30 o'clock

  • 10.30 o'clock

  • 13.30 o'clock

  • 15.30 o'clock
     

On Friday:
  • 08.30 o'clock

  • 10.30 o'clock

  • 13.00 o'clock

  • 15.00 o'clock

What does a private appointment look like?

During a test ride you will be welcomed with coffee or tea and have a seat in the showroom. All Van Raam bicycles are available here. The technical advisor will sit down with you and talk to you. In this conversation it will come clear which bike might be most suitable for you, this depends on the reasons why you are looking for a custom bike. After this conversation it is possible to test your bike and cycle on the test track at Van Raam. After the test ride you will take a seat in the showroom again and the advisor will make you an offer containing the bike and the options you need to be able to cycle properly. It is not possible to order a bike at Van Raam, therefore you can take the offer to a dealer in your area. This dealer can order the bike from Van Raam.

Showroom Van Raam open for private shopping because of coronavirus

Van Raam follows the measures of the RIVM

We follow the measures taken by the RIVM (Dutch State Institute for Public Health). We would like to offer you the opportunity for a test ride and this will be slightly different from what you might be used to from us. For example, we always keep a distance of 1.5 meters, and we ask you to do the same. At the time we are not able to guide you up close, because otherwise there will be physical contact. Should it turn out during the fitting that 1.5 meters is not sufficient for safety, we will be forced to stop the test ride. This is for your own safety as well as for our safety. In addition, you may bring, in addition to yourself, a maximum of 1 other person. If more than one person is present, we unfortunately cannot give them access to our premises. Unfortunately, no factory visits are taking place at the moment.

The following measures shall apply in the case of a test ride:

  • The four appointments with a technical advisor take place in the showroom at Van Raam at the same time. The appointments take place in another part of the large showroom and extra spacious places have been created. The appointments are of course separated as much as possible in the showroom and outside.

  • There will always be a 1.5 meters distance. We will not be able to guide you up close because, no physical contact may take place. Should it appear during the pass that the 1.5 m distance is not sufficient for safety, we will be forced to stop the test ride. This is for your own safety as well as ours. You are welcome at another time.

  • You may bring a maximum of 1 other person with you during the test ride.

  • We follow the hygiene measures. The used bicycle(s) and the table are cleaned hygienically and thoroughly after every fitting. Would you like to bring your own protective equipment? Then that is of course possible.


Attention: Do you have (mild) symptoms of a cold (sneezing, sore throat, runny nose, light coughing or a raised tempreature) Then we ask you to stay at home and avoid (social) contacts.   

Have you already made an appointment and you have the above mentioned symptoms? Then please contact Van Raam and cancel the appointment. 

At a later moment you are more than welcome at Van Raam!
