About The Business
My Wife and I established and have grown the hire business from humble beginning's of our own personal few motorcycles (2) to where it is now with 11 currently in the fleet.
My wife works a 'Regular" part time job, and I used to help run it while having full time employment, but now am running it with a part time job as well.
That is the wonderful thing about this business. It does not require your full time attention, unless you want to expand it and grow it even further. We have structured the business in a way that really only requires your attention at pick up and return times. I have even had a retired family get involved in the rare occasion they are needed.
This business would suit anyone. But especially those who are looking for something to supplement employment, or keep them occupied while retired or wanting to generate an income with minimal daily commitment.
Of course if you are a "PATIONATE MOTORCYCLE" Rider / Enthusiast, then why not have a stable full of varied rides you can enjoy at your leisure.
We have been providing motorcycles to enjoy for day trips, overnights, weekends & long term hires to Local's, Interstate & International customers. Our customers have travelled majority of the time within Perth, but have also ventured outside Perth to explore WA, and also at times to travel interstate. We have numerous repeat customers and the referrals of previous customers is refreshingly rewarding.
We thought when Covid hit, that it would impact our business, and although we where affected with our International customers, and to a certain point interstate. It did not. In fact our local interest increased dramatically, especially within our FIFO workforce who where looking for things to enjoy / treat themselves while on downtime.
The business has been firmly established now for approx 5 years.
Products & Services
We offer a wide variety of motorcycle brands and styles for the customer(s) to hire for as short as a day, or as long as they require.
We offer to deliver and collect (Where possible to suit our / customers needs)
The bikes (most) have various luggage options, and we can provide them with additional items like GPS, Intercoms, as well as the usual helmets, gloves, and riding gear where required.
We outsource all our motorcycle servicing which are done by numerous local workshops / mechanics and are done as per log book requirements.
All motorcycles are insured with the same provider since commencement and we have built a great working relationship with them along the way.
Our motorcycles are such that excite people, as they have excited us. We wanted to give people motorcycles that break the tradition of your "Typical" old tired looking boring motorcycles. We wanted motorcycles that would make you go "Damn, never new I could hire that" So that is one reason I believe we have grown so quickly to where we are now.
Most of our motorcycles have "Loud" exhausts, or extra's that make it wow, which to be honest is what we get most feedback from customers saying they liked.
We started the business from our home garage originally, but now due to growth have the motorcycles stored and run it from a secure "National Storage" lock up location. This location costs us very minimal to hire per month and works perfectly with the business.
the location has power to keep the motorcycles charged up and run a few items like eftpos machine, fridge, air compressor etc.
We don't advertise our physical location until a booking is made and meet the customers upon collection and return of their hired motorcycle.
The location has secure (gates / camera's / no access after hours) services and gives us peace of mind knowing they are secure.
Customers can easily partk there vehicles (Unsecured) nearby, however most will get dropped off, uber or catch public transport nearby.
However that once again is the beauty of the business. You have numerous options of where and how you could run the business if you decided to relocate.
It is what ever you want it to be.
We have structured the business in a way that it typically requires presence either 8am in the morning or 5pm in the afternoon.
The only variance to this is to suit the customers / your needs.
We have run it 365 days a year when needed and blocked out days / weeks when we have not wanted to be disturbed or have gone away for a holiday with the family.
All motorcycles are owned outright by us, with no finance on anything.
We maintain as required, sell & buy as we see fit and opportunity provides.
Pay for the use of the storage location.
Have a friend maintain our website / social media at a low monthly cost.
Pay our lost costs for our eftpos machine and bank account.
The business has provided a very healthy profit each and every year in operation, and is only getting better and better, with no signs of slowing down.
It is currently run by my wife and I. Occasionally I have a retired family member help out if and when we are unavailable.
You could structure and run it with one person or as many as you wanted.

More than happy to pass on any training required, tips and advise learned and offer any future reasonable support to any successful buyer, until they are up and running and confident.
I see numerous huge potential for the business.
We are by far the market leader with minimal competition here in WA.
Add / Remove motorcycles to the fleet.
Grow the business or keep it the same.
We already have numerous secured bookings forecasted into the coming months, with enquires via phone / email / social on a daily basis.
Reason For Sale
We are building a house to cater for our own family and extended aging family needs, that also requires us to move location.
We never intended to have the business grow beyond our control or comfort.
It has served our needs more than we could of first imagined, and now it is time for someone else who is passionate about the motorcycle scene to take it in which ever direction they wish.
Keep in mind with the sale price that a large portion of the cost is the value of the motorcycles themselves.
More than happy to discuss / negotiate with prospective buyers. However this is something that has been a dream of mine to build to where it is now and I care about it and who it sells to, and for what price I let her go for.
Many people have asked over the years if I would sell it, or wanted my advise to start there own business up.
So I know it will appeal to the right person out there and I wish nothing but the best for whoever is lucky enough to take it and make it there own.
