Riders Share now takes foreign riders. Simply submit your driving record to firstname.lastname@example.org and save money when renting a motorcycle in the U.S. Ride safely!
Last week, one of our first customers had a friend visiting from Germany. They rented a motorcycle from Mike for 5 days and put 1,000 miles on it! Everything went well, according to them. Here's the best part of the story: our customer saves almost $700 compared to traditional rentals.
Mike was happy to make +$200 from this ride. He also recognized he could have charged a bit more. We wanted to take this opportunity to remind users that the site is programmed to automatically give discounts on longer term rentals; as an owner, you have full control of what these discounts can be.
We are the best value in motorcycle rentals. Ride on!
It's been less than a month, and RidersShare already offers more than 20 motorcycles in more than 10 different cities across almost 10 states.
We are particularly successful in the Southern California area, where we have about 10 motorcycles already:
This weekend, we will be sending our motorcycle owners tips on how to get them rented out more often, so that they can make more money.
So you are thinking about listing on RidersShare, or you already have your motorcycle listed? Good! Here is a list of steps you can take to make sure it gets rented faster:
1.) Google My Business
This is the most important thing you can do. When people search for motorcycle rentals on Google, they can see yours in the maps section if it is listed in Google My Business. To do it, follow the link below and fill in the info. If you don't feel comfortable sharing your contact info, use email@example.com and (657) 200-5470 instead. Once you are done. you will receive a letter from Google in a few days to verify your address. It's very simple and super effective:
2.) Yelp for Business Owners
This is very similar to Google My Business. In this case, however, RidersShare Inc has the ability to create a listing for you (if you are feeling lazy). Just reply to this email letting us know! Otherwise, create the listing yourself using this link:
3.) Good 'Ole Craigslist
Create a listing under "For Sale by Owner" in the motorcycles section. Make sure to clearly title it "For RENT Only" or something along those lines. Again, you can use your contact info or RidersShare's - it's up to you. Make sure not to use a link to www.riders-share.com, but instead mention the bike can be found at RidersShare's website (to be compliant with Craigslist's policies).
4.) Any Free Website
Tell your friends about RidersShare on social media; forums and other location listing websites like Yelp. We will be very grateful, and your pockets too! For any questions/suggestions, send an email to support @riders-share.com
Thank you, and keep the rubber side down!
At RidersShare, we encourage you to be as safe as possible. Overall, studies have shown over and over that helmets have saved countless of lives and you should use them when riding motorcycles (full-face helmets if you care about being not so ugly after the accident).
That said, motorcycles are about freedom, so here's a list of states with helmet laws. Keep in mind you need to be 25 or older to rent from RidersShare. States may have different rules for your under 21 or under 18 passenger, not covered here
