Maintain your Bike Rental Business Alive with Powder Coating

Posted on: January 9th, 2016 by byersbushblog

Bikes are built to last and they come with a protective coating designed to stand up to the elements for years. Unfortunately the bodies of the bikes in your rental company are going to wear out before many of the other components such as the chain that’s greased regularly. What that means is that you’ll have to replace your equipment about once every five to ten years or you’ll have to take the time to keep it all protectively coated to last.

Invest in Higher Quality Products

It almost always makes sense to pay for higher end equipment when you are running a rental shop as long as you can keep that equipment in good shape for many years. Not only will it perform more reliably over time thanks to better parts and craftsmanship, but it will also come with more comprehensive warranties and most importantly will encourage customers to use your services over your competitors. If you are offering superior equipment for rent, you will naturally be the first choice for your customers, especially if your prices are at least comparable.

As long as you are willing to spend the added money for a layer of powder coat when the first layer of paint begins to wear off the bikes and other rental equipment that you have, you can feel free to buy the quality stuff rather than the cheap items. Not only will buying quality equipment help your business bring in more customers and hold out better than the cheap stuff, but you’ll be able to justify a protective coating much easier than you would with cheap equipment.

When you spend $1,800 on a bike, it’s easy to see why you would want to protect that investment. That’s a major difference from the $150 bikes that some shops rent out, or even the mid-range $800 bikes that you’ll see at some shops.

Save Money

Even though you will likely be paying more for the higher end equipment for your shop, you’ll end up saving money when you pay for powder coating services. That’s because that expensive equipment is going to last much longer than the cheap equipment would have when you protect it with the coating.

By stretching out the number of years that you can rely on the same equipment you will ultimately spend less per year for your equipment than you would when buying lower quality stuff without the added protection.

Customize Your Equipment

Another very real benefit of using a protective coating service is that you will have the ability to customize all your equipment. You can set every one of your bikes to a custom color that will help signify your business. By doing this it will also make it much more difficult for people to steal your equipment since it will have that signature look on it.

Coatings come in many different colors, finishes and even textures. Whether you want purple and pink bikes, a golden finish or something in-between you can get just the right colors for your needs. It’s simple to get the colors that you want when you work with a reputable company like Byers Bush and you’ll love that custom look that you have in the end.

Getting your equipment customized also makes it easier to blend in additional products to your collection even if they are different brands of equipment. You can feel free to branch out a bit more and obtain different equipment brands and still keep that uniform look at your business when you get things coated.

No matter what types of bikes you rent out, if you want them to last as long as they can, you should consider getting them protectively coated. It’s relatively affordable considering all the money you will save from such as coating, and you’ll have so many options that you’ll likely have a hard time picking out the one that you want to use.

Contact Byers Bush to get your bike powder coated rather than painting it, it will protect your bike from corrosion to make it lasts longer and keep your rental bike business alive to generate more profit.
