Metropolis, a 5 stars motorbike/scooter dealer!

August 6, 2009

We have just been notified that Metropolis, a very reputable motorbike/scooter dealer, have decided to do everything they possibly can to support the legal fight against Westminster City Council undertaken by the No To Bike Parking Tax campaign. Below is a statement made by the campaign’s chairman in a private forum created by campaigners to discuss opinions, ideas and issues concerning the experimental bike parking tax in Westminster:-

“Following a meeting with head man Ian Waldock, I am delighted to announce that Metropolis will donate 15p for every £1 donated by bikers (not trade), which will be backdated to the start i.e. will can bill them straight away for 15% of what we have collected so far (i.e. £16,562 x 15% = £2,484-30 immediately)”.

We already had a lot of respect for Metropolis, and more particularly for their professionalism, friendly and dedicated staff. We have visited Metropolis a few times before and been very impressed with them. The service provided is of great quality, they’re open seven days a week and they do everything they possibly can to meet their customers’ expectations.

A member of the same private forum has posted the following message about Metropolis:-

“I have bought a few things from Metropolis Vauxhall before and I must admit that I have found them really good, professional and very friendly. The big advantage with them is that they have a huge stock of parts, so if your bike needs repairing, they can actually do it a hell of a lot quicker than most other dealers who need to order the parts first. So I would encourage everyone to use Metropolis, and they do all sorts of makes.

I made the mistake to buy my current bike from a Yamaha shop that is absolutely awful, unfriendly and inefficient, but next time I buy a new bike, I will definitely do so from Metropolis, I love them”.

Further information about Metropolis is available here and we highly recommend them to all London bikers! Not only their mission is to make their customers happy, but with the massive support that they have given to the No To Bike Parking Tax campaign, we can be confident that Metropolis take great care of the interests and concerns of the motorcyclist community.

    Superb news! Metropolis are showing the way for dealers across London, and more importantly for the MCIA… they are standing behind their customers and helping them to face down the might of WCC, good on them.

    Other traders would do well to take note – these guys will be having my custom shortly…

    When will the rest of the bike industry wake up to the fact that this is the single biggest threat to their business.
