2018 Incentives for Scrapping Your Car
Are you looking to get rid of your old gas-guzzler and decided to go “e” instead?
Scrap the car and benefit from the BC SCRAP-IT Program when buying an electric bicycle.
Oak Bay Bicycles is a participating retailer which means that when you scrap your car you can get $850 off the purchase of a new electric bike (minimum retail price of $1,000).
A $100 discount (before taxes) will be applied at the point of sale in store upon presentation of the official SCRAP-IT email approval letter and the remainder of $750 will be credited through the program. To claim the bigger portion of the incentive you will need a POS debit, credit or cash register receipt, AND a receipt which includes your name – we will print this type of receipt for you.
The program DOES NOT provide incentives for regular (non-electric) bicycles anymore.
An electric bike, or motor-assisted cycle, is a two- or three-wheeled cycle with a seat, pedals and an electric motor (up to 500 watts). For a more detailed description of an electric bike, please visit the program’s page.
