Question about renting out my motorbike

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of buying a new honda click, but I only need it 3-4 months each year. Is there any trustworthy place that can rent it out for me, and manage everything about it? I am based in Pattaya/Bangkok, but could probably transport it elsewere too, as I love driving.

 

Is this a popular thing to do?

In Pattaya alone there are 1000s of bikes unrented so i think you're onto a loser but no harm in advertising on Facebook and see if a taker

I tried renting a bike a few years back and noticed that the price had hiked up like 30-50% in one year, and every place charged the same, and refused to lower their fee.

 

There is obviously a collusion between the shops, which is probably why there are so many unrented bikes (even before all the currency and corona troubles.)

No, it is not simple. I have nitrogen in my tyres, and to stop the garage people putting oxygen in I had to have decals put on the valves to inform them of this situation.

They look nice and it doesn't upset me one bit.

Next when I have the local cleaning people come and clean my bike I have to emphasise more than once that I do not want oil sprayed onto my chain, I put quality Yamaha chain lube on, and leave it overnight so that it doesn't drip and spray all over the rims when in use and make them dirty.

Why not just rent a bike for yourself for 3 - 4 months.

 

All the bother of owning a bike, and if it gets damaged or whatnot.

Bikes being stolen in Thailand is rampant. If this happens I rather doubt the renting agent would take any action (stolen or damaged) and in 99.9% of cases the police will do nothing.
