Bike rental aggregator Wheelstreet expands its reach in smaller cities

Zip around on rented bikes

That mean machine was acquired with a lot of enthusiasm, right?

Now it’s not only biting dust in the garage, but the EMI is still the elephant in the room. How we wish the world had smaller problems to deal with. Here’s a thought - Why not earn a small part of the EMI back by renting it out, giving the poor bike’s limbs some much-needed exercise, a whiff of fresh air and a happy traveller a ride for a few days?

Motorcycle rental by Wheelstreet.com has been a successful concept in cities like Bengaluru, Delhi, Goa, Mumbai and Hyderabad. But who says being in a small town denies you the same privileges as the big city-dwellers? Expanding their base in smaller cities like Srinagar, Nainital, Jaisalmer and more, Wheelstreet is taking baby steps towards bigger aspirations. You can rent or let-out your bike to locals or travellers and earn a percentage of the rent while doing nothing at all. Vendors have the added advantage of managing their rides via the app, whereas customers will have to make do with the website for now.

And if you’re a traveller, simply plan that next holiday, reach your destination and a well-developed website will take care of your transport woes while you’re busy impressing the bae or taking the kids to museums and community parks. Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? We initially thought so too, but the website provides various options from your pick-up location, and depending on how well and in advance you’ve planned the pick-up, you get better prices too! You can choose your ride, pick-up location and timing and bam – you’re ready for an adventure.

Ensure your license and insurances are in place before you go zipping around!
