In an effort to better support riders in these challenging times Mobile Bicycle Mechanics from across Australia have come together via a national service directory.
Over 20 Mechanics from 15 major cities have already joined the fledgling network that enables customers to find the mechanic nearest to them and mechanics to share experience & knowledge between themselves, find more work in their local area and reduce travel times.
By working together Mobile Mechanics now offers bike shops, wholesalers, distributors and online bike retailers a skilled and efficient delivery network to assemble and service bikes bought online in the convenience of customers’ garage or workplace.
“We’re in early talks to partner with dozens of online retailers and looking forward to further discussions with passionate mechanics, distributors and online retailers across Australia to see what opportunities this creates,” said Hayden Nosatti founder of Mobile Bike Mechanics Australia.
Hayden founded Tune Cycles in Sydney back in 2016 and it is now the largest mobile mechanics business in Australia with five mechanics and three vans. He’s also about to set up a workshop in the inner city suburb of Marrickville to give more space for stock and for doing larger and heavier mechanical repairs.
Hayden does not see himself as in competition to brick and mortar retailers. “On a local level we’ve always had a positive relationship with bike shops. They’ve enabled us to get access to parts that we wouldn’t have got from traditional distributors over the past years. Ultimately the Mobile Bicycle Mechanics network is intended to give retailers and distributors the opportunities to sell assembled bikes, fitted parts and maintenance at the customers’ home or office. As a network we’re hoping to collaborate with brick and mortar retailers who want to extend outside their geographic boundaries, provided they’ve got the dealer agreements to do so.
“As online grows through pandemics and restrictions, we’re open to working with mum and pop shop that wants to open up a webstore, through to the established online sellers.”
