Wholesale Scooters

It's fun and it can be profitable. That's what many entrepreneurs are saying about the wholesale scooters business these days. With the growing concern about transportation costs and the desire for new ways of enjoying spare time, wholesale scooters have become a huge business.

As is the case with new automobiles and motorcycles, many manufacturers and their representatives work exclusively with authorized dealers. For example, several wholesale scooters merchants purchase from factories in large numbers (ship container, truck load) allowing them to keep their prices low for those buying at the wholesale level. But to enter the business at the retail dealer/reseller level, interested entrepreneurs must have a state sales tax number, other required business licenses and, most important, repair and service expertise.

What makes the wholesale scooters business so enticing now? Let's list a few of the key factors.

*Electric scooters are cheaper to run
*Gasoline scooters use less fuel than cars
*Scooters are available from many sources other than retail
*Manufacturers and wholesale scooters pros want to help you get started
*You may be able to start in the reselling business by purchasing wholesale scooters at auction (liquidation, closeout etc.)
*Start up costs may be less than you think

Many wholesale scooters merchants also offer ATVs, dirt bikes and other motorized products, so they generally have the sales and mechanical expertise to help you if you are interested in working in the wholesale scooters trade. Tip: Ask if the supplier has direct shipping at the lowest prices from factories in China and elsewhere. This will make a lot of difference in the price the wholesale scooters merchant can quote to you.

Some of these merchants have a dollar-amount minimum for orders from their true wholesale customers. Others will require you to purchase at least two or three scooters with each order to qualify for wholesale pricing. If the merchant has a significant inventory and does not have to broker a scooter at the time you order it, you can probably expect delivery in a few days. Things speed up a bit if you are an approved credit customer. Most wholesale scooters suppliers will ship free of charge for customers at this level. But be sure to ask about his and all other policies before agreeing to the purchase. Tip: Be sure to understand the requirements for street legal scooters, though this will be less of a problem for retail/resell clients than for the individual who is fortunate to buy from a wholesale scooters merchant.

One of the keys to success in the wholesale scooters business is being able to back up the sale of the product with technical support and repair help. This may not be a problem for the individual who buys from a local retail shop, but for the wholesale businessman parts and repair are a major consideration. This is something that each wholesale scooters merchant should have in place.

Prices on scooters vary widely, with the more well-known names commanding a higher price. Some of the top name scooters can cost several hundred dollars more than less-recognized brands. In some cases, a true wholesale customer can buy 2 or 3 scooters for the price of one major name scooter. This in itself may be enough reason to try the profitable field of wholesale scooters. But keep in mind that, due to the repair/parts factor, choices are somewhat limited when it comes to wholesale scooters.
