When you get through a lot of motorcycle parts, like we do at my garage in East London, you need to make sure you have a good relationship with a motorcycle parts distributor. Even if you have a car-based business and motorcyclist only make up a small percentage of your clients, you are quickly going to find yourself struggling if you do not have a regular motorcycle parts distributor, or if your motorcycle parts distributor is unreliable. Motorcyclists can be impatient when they need repairs. They are often commuters, who need their motorcycle to get to work, or even to do their work. Waiting for you to fix their bike, because you are waiting for your motorcycle parts distributor to complete your order costs them money, and will quickly cost you money too. Or they may be racers or classic bike enthusiasts with specific demands and expectations. In general, what you should be looking for is a motorcycle parts distributor that is:
- Good value, not overcharging for basic parts;
- Able to supply a wide range of products for a wide range of motorcycles;
- Quick, efficient and reliable;
- Friendly and able to advise you when necessary.
Besides the items on that list, it is particularly important to us to know that we can order during all of our opening and working hours, but also to be able to search outside of work hours if necessary, so a motorcycle parts distributor with a clear, well-built and easy to use website is a huge advantage. There are probably several around, but once you have found one, it can make your working life much more relaxing and it helps you to help your clients. That is the reason that we were happy to discover Double R Parts.
Our motorcycle parts distributor
We have a fantastic working relationship with Double R Parts. Double R Parts are a motorcycle parts distributor based in the Netherlands. They only sell business to business, which means that they can offer their products at good prices, and that they do not have to clutter their site, doublerparts.com , with unnecessary information or products that hobbyists and amateur mechanics might need. They provide a product catalogue with a search function, so that you can find the parts that your client requires and that you are looking for with little effort. They supply for a wide range of makes and models, and it is rare that we need a part that they are not able to get to us. All products arrive on time, usually within two days, and we have not yet had any problems with anything that they have supplied to us, and we are yet to feel dissatisfied with the service.
Turning to other companies
Occasionally we have to go to a different motorcycle parts distributor for particularly specialized products, for rare bikes or for something custom made. There are plenty around, but it will always take a lot more searching around to find exactly what you need in those circumstances. It is time-consuming and often frustrating. That is why it is so useful to have a motorcycle parts distributor that you can rely on for the majority of the parts and products that your garage needs. If you have not found one yet, I would strongly recommend that you take a look at the website from Double R Parts and see if they might be your best solution for finding the motorcycle parts that you need to help your customers and build a successful business out of a motorcycle garage.
