Used motorcycle parts are in amazing abundance these days owing to the increasing numbers of people driving motorcycles around the world. The scare of global warming has forced a number of countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by having fewer motor cars on national roads. Amidst the global turmoil surrounding global warming there is the opportunity to make thousands of dollars. The driver’s of motorcycles are increasing in numbers every day, thereby prompting a lot of businessmen to invest in the business of buying and selling motorcycle parts.
You do not have to be a motor mechanic to start a business of selling parts for motorcycles, just business minded. The very first thing you must do is choose a place of business. With that done your next task should consist of advertising your business to your community. Advertising can be achieved through distributing fliers, placing posters in public areas and also by placing ads in newspapers and car magazines. I would not really advise you to start a business just yet; the high income taxes can hurt a business of this nature.
You need to find spare parts in any way possible. A lot of people in the business of buying and selling car parts go to car compounds for damaged or impounded vehicles. Impounded vehicles are those motor vehicles, motorcycles included, that have been noted as not roadworthy or not having the necessary ownership documentation. Business people hardly turn to these because the common misconception is that they are hard to procure. The reality is government agencies can’t wait to get rid of them, even through the several auctions and open sales they have.
These vehicles and motorcycles can be obtained for a cheap price and broken down for spare parts. Once you have broken down these parts you can easily recondition and sell them for prices so low it will be impossible for you not to make a profit.
Another way of making money through spare parts is by contracting with major motorcycle manufacturing companies. If you schedule meetings with such manufacturers and establish business links you can end up becoming a distributor for them. The good thing about being a distributor is that you obtain parts at a cheap cost and sell them at your own price, sometimes without even having to pay cash for them upfront.
But once everything is said and done standard business practices like honesty, client loyalty and consistently good service make for a perfectly founded business initiative that will be profitable.
