The 2023 season is almost over. We are closed from November 1 to April 1, during the sailing and recreation season.
The past two years have been extremely busy and extremely fun. We spoke to a lot of nice people and heard enthusiastic stories. We are blessed with really nice customers, you were one of them, thank you for that!
In 2022, we purchased a limited stock of bicycles with our own resources and started renting them out from a garage. The idea was to rent out high-quality bicycles in a personal way. We think it will work!
The box is now completely full of bicycles and we are looking for additional space or another location.
We always try to take steps to streamline the process, so last year we switched to a digital system including online reservations. Everything is aimed at making it as easy as possible for us, but also for you.
In addition to regular e-bikes and bicycles, we now also have smaller e-bikes for smaller people. We have also purchased children’s bicycles (without motor) for different ages. Of course, we also look at how we should continue to grow, if we find the space for that.
We expect to sell our ‘old’ bikes at the end of next season. They are only 3 years old, but from a business perspective they have already been written off for us. The bicycles still have a manufacturer’s warranty of more than 2 years and are always well maintained. Of course they have done their mileage. More about this in a later newsletter.
We are of course always curious about your opinion about us. What’s nice, what’s stupid? We’d love to hear your feedback.
What is also very important to us are reviews, especially on Google and Facebook. We will then appear better in the search engines and that will bring us customers.
If you have not yet written a review, you can help us enormously by giving stars for our rental on Google and Facebook.
We enjoy giving you as a customer a small insight into our small company. We hope you appreciate that. And of course leave a nice review 😉
