Motorcycle Service That Comes To You...

This is just a feeler to see who would utilize a service shop, that for a fee would come to your place of residence and perform everything from general maintenance and bolt ons to full suspension service. I would like to hear everyones input. Thanks

Depends on the fee, but I would imagine that it's a fantastic idea for many peeps living downtown and having more money than free time (plus not having garage, tools, supplies and all that crap).

I think it's a great idea, but would I use it? No

I think as posted the people that would get better use would be city folk or people without a garage/work area.

How many people actually take their bikes to shops? would it be comparable costwise to that cost or more? then it would come down to timing.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

Excllent idea guys convience for thoes who cant get the bike to the shop and for thoes who bikes cant run.

Everyone needs a healthy way to relax, mine Church, and two wheels, a stretch of winding road, and a pipe loud enough to give me headaches and make squirrels explode. (Fixed curtousey of PWRMAD)

Nothing is impossible the second we say ill try your already admiting you can be defeated, and the second you say i cant or its to hard youve already failed.

I really like the idea depending on the actual extra cost involved to show up at my garage.

For someone like me that works full times, has two little kids, in school, blah blah it's not always easier to get out. If a company/person could just bring his truck and tools to my garage that would be perfect!

I'm not sure that I would use an @home service, but I would possibly use a pick-up/drop-off service. Good luck with the idea.

Really good idea, especially since having maintenance done on a bike typically involves dropping off the bike and having to get someone to pick you up to bring you home and then drive you back out to pick up the bike. The small extra fee would be great just to avoid having to bug friends to drive you around. Plus if a bike is not working most of us do not have trailers so it is a real pain figuring out how to get a bike to a shop if the bike is not running.

And you can even take the bike back with you if the job requires a tool you do not have at the time of repair and return bike would completed.
Sort of like the pick up service you already offer.

The extra charge would be minimal, basically I was thinking between $20 and $30 for us to come to the customer. If for some reason the job can not be completed on site and we had to take it back with us and return it to you, the charge would be $50 for the round trip.

This was always my problem before we started Turn One. I was always waiting on a ride to and from the dealer and we all know that our personal schedules rarely coincide with one of your friends willing to help.

It will be handled on a case by case basis but most of the time we would plan on rolling the bike into our mobile shop with heat There is however going to be some days with heavy snow that could keep us from wanting to pull around a 25 foot trailer.

as for my oppinion on the service:

I like the idea, however in all likelyhood I would not be using it, I already do the vast vast majority of my own work and should I need to transport the bike to get soemthing done I have several options to getting it there (back of my truck, on my trailer, or they can pick it up)

$20 bucks isn't that bad. It could easily cover the gas cost to drive on site.

I also do my own work, but if I get stuck and need work done I'd probably be willing to pay $20-$50. Its nice to not have to load my bike drop it off, and go pick it up from places. Plus I'm confident in having turn one work on my bike.
