Used motorcycle parts are in amazing abundance these days as more and more people around the world ride motorcycles. Fear of global warming has forced a number of countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by having fewer cars on national roads. Amid the global turmoil surrounding global warming, there is an opportunity to make thousands of dollars. The number of motorcycle riders is increasing every day, which makes many businessmen invest in the business of buying and selling motorcycle parts.
You don’t have to be an auto mechanic to start a business selling motorcycle parts, just business oriented. The first thing you need to do is decide on a place of business. With that done, your next task should be promoting your business to your community. Advertising can be done by distributing flyers, putting up posters in public spaces and placing ads in newspapers and car magazines. I wouldn’t really advise you to start a business just yet; The high income taxes can harm a company of this type.
You need to find spare parts any way you can. Many people who buy and sell auto parts go to auto repair shops for damaged or impounded vehicles. Impounded vehicles are those motor vehicles, including motorcycles, that have been determined to be unroadworthy or that do not have the required title documents. Business people rarely turn to these because of the common misconception that they are difficult to obtain. The reality is that government agencies can’t wait to get rid of them, even through the various auctions and open sales they have.
These vehicles and motorcycles can be purchased cheaply and disassembled for spare parts. Once you disassemble these parts, you can easily refurbish them and sell them at prices so low it’s impossible not to make a profit.
Another way to make money from spare parts is to sign deals with major motorcycle manufacturers. By planning meetings with such manufacturers and establishing business relationships, you can end up becoming a distributor for them. The good thing about being a dealer is that you can get parts at a bargain price and sell them at your own price, sometimes without having to pay for them in cash upfront.
But when all is said and done, standard business practices like honesty, customer loyalty and consistently good service make for a perfectly sound business initiative that will be profitable.
