Motorbike Valeting

#1 Post by Lateralus » Tue Dec 05, 2017 11:16 pm

A friend of mine has started offering motorbike valeting in Nottingham, so (with his lordship's permission :mrgreen: ) just thought I'd give her a plug here:
https://www.facebook.com/calibremotorcyclevaleting/

She is frankly a little obsessed with cleaning bikes, and I can genuinely say she does a very thorough job. Took mine in a couple of weeks ago for a full clean and ACF50 treatment before the first of the gritters came out, and imagine I'll take it back in the spring too.

I know it won't appeal to all, but if anyone else can't be arsed with cleaning their bike then it's worth a visit.

I toyed with the idea of motorbike valeting as a returement job, but suitable premisis was the big issue.

Thats just one location for an entire country. Pretty useless except for what ever forum members live within a short distance of there.

Wait, what? So it's only a useful service if they were to set up on a national basis from the very beginning? :scratch:

Best get some European sites set up too for our overseas forum members. Oh, and @RantMachine, any need for valet services in the US? I'm sure my friend would love to fly out with all her cleaning materials. :popcorn:

She's started up on her patio, under a big servicing tent/gazebo thing, which is plenty big enough for working on bikes. Think there are plans to find proper business premises at some point in the future though, all being well.

Probably only in Nottingham though I'm afraid.

Newsflash, not every biker in the country is on this forum!

Never implied every biker was on this forum. I said it was useless because the odds of anyone on this forum that lived close enough to use that service are low. Maybe I am a bit harsh in my use of the word useless, but my point is the recommendation would be better suited aimed at local websites, clubs etc rather than on a national forum which I believe this is. Its one reason why you never see your local corner shop being advertised during a commercial break on TV.

But he hasn't paid to put it on here like your corner shop would on TV, it's free. So if 4 people within a 10 mile radius of the place see it, it could end up in business for her.

It's never useless to post on a website that has high rankings in Google search results!

The first thing people do is Google a service and this forum is highly scraped by search engines so it's an added bonus to the forum as it will come up in search engines and lead people to the forum and also the service will be picked up quickly by search engines.

For a 3 day old post to be front page of Google is very good.
