One of the most frequent questions; Will customers trust the new mechanic who takes over the business or will they only want to deal with Martin? A. Loyalty vs. can’t wait! Most customers are happy to have their bicycle fixed as soon as possible and seeing a professional Cycle Tech UK mechanic in uniform are only too pleased. Some customers will expect to see Martin, as there is a trust, it would only be a matter of time and we would also promote the new owner in email newsletters, website and social media via a large database to help maximise your return. And I can also offer support at the beginning, working alongside you and introduce you to those customers.

Disclaimer:Viewing is essential to fully appreciate this business and strictly by appointment only.

  1. You’ll end up with soft hands ;-].. Seriously though, this could and should be good news for the rest of the Cycle Tech members if it allows more time to promote the brand? And someone will be getting a good setup in your old area.
