Starting your own motorcycle repair shop can be a difficult, yet rewarding experience.
The best way to approach this situation would be to start it as a hobby, which means you don't want to quit your day job. You should find a local shop and work there part time. Don't worry about fixing things yet, just offer to help with the cleaning.
After a while, once they begin to trust you, small fixing jobs will occur.
You may eventually be able to charge for your work. If you do your best, this will reflect in the customers' attitude. Don't charge too little or too much, as people will not take a liking to this.
Just charge a little under your competitors and you are in business.
Remember to charge for the work you do and try not to do favors or create tabs for clients, as they will take advantage. Special order parts take time to deliver and are usually non-refundable.
Take note of this, as mis comprehension will reflect bad sales.
Account for running costs such as lights, advertising, manuals, etc. due to these costs, it's common to mark up prices 100%.
It may seem like a lot but in reality, if you sell at this price, at least you will be breaking even. It is also important to make sure you charge for labor costs as well as parts. Repairs take time and time is money.
When creating a store, think about location. Don't expect customers to come flocking even when it's in a good location.
It takes time for word to get around, and people will not build trust in your business overnight....
