How do we make things easier for you when hiring a bike?

Darren Salter - Monday, April 30, 2018

The weather’s getting better, the daylight hours are becoming longer and many more of us are thinking of getting out onto the open road on our motorcycles. But what happens if you’re currently ‘between bikes’ or have only recently become legally able to ride a motorbike?

In that case, you may take an interest in motorcycle hire from us. Here are just some of the ways in which South East Motorcycle Hire can make life easier for you when you wish to hire a set of wheels.

We’re conveniently located

It’s no wonder we’re such a popular option for motorbike hire near Heathrow Airport or Gatwick Airport; we’re excellently situated for both airports, and indeed, other transport connections throughout the South East of England.

You’ll find us on Crowhurst Road, Lingfield, just eight minutes from the M25 (J6) on the border of Surrey and Kent. 

Both pick-up and delivery are possible

You can, of course, just visit us to pick up your hire bike. However, you’ve also got the option of having the bike and any equipment that you have rented delivered to any location within the UK.

Subject to fees, we can even collect you from various airports, train stations or ferry/channel ports in the South of England.

What about storage for your luggage?

If you have luggage that you aren’t exactly able to bring with you while you use your rental bike, we’d be happy to store it for you until you return with the bike.

All of the essential accessories can also be hired

Everything that you could need to get more out of your bike is available on a rental basis from us, including not just the obvious essentials such as a helmet, jacket and trousers, but also the likes of boots, gloves, rucksacks, tank bags, rear seat bags and even satnavs.

A ridesharing scheme for your group

When there are many of you in a group who each wish to hire a motorcycle, you might be interested in our ridesharing scheme that enables you to hire multiple bikes and ride any of them without having to pay extra.

Whether you’re looking for motorbike hire near Heathrow Airport, Gatwick Airport or anywhere else in southern England, you’ve chosen the right company when you opt for South East Motorcycle Hire. We’re all about making your life as a motorcycling enthusiast easier, so that you can simply focus on you, your bike and the road.

Just some advantages of hiring a motorbike this spring

Darren Salter - Wednesday, April 04, 2018

Motorcycling enthusiasts the length and breadth of the UK routinely look forward to the return of spring, and we can’t say we blame them. After all, if you’ve not climbed aboard a bike at all during the winter, you might well be itching to get back out onto the open road.

But what are the big advantages of using a trusted UK motorbike hire service such as our own here at South East Motorcycle Hire, instead of purchasing a motorcycle or not travelling by bike at all?

It’s a welcome opportunity to feel the wind in your hair

There’s nothing like being able to get out of the repressive environment of a car and onto a bike, so that you can experience the sensation of the wind rushing past you and the flies in your teeth.

On a more serious note, though, the spring is a good time to get used to riding a bike again if you haven’t been on two wheels for a while.

There’s a lot to get accustomed to, from ensuring that you have the helmet, leathers and other gear to suit your motorcycling needs this spring and summer, right through to the finer points of bike maintenance, such as washing, waxing and checking fluid levels.

It might be that you are presently ‘between bikes’, in which case, hiring a motorcycle from us enables you to slowly get back into the swing of things as a motorbike enthusiast while the weather gradually improves.

It gives you the chance to try out a new bike

Perhaps you’ve always wondered what a Triumph Tiger 800 XC is really like to ride, or whether those reviews you’ve read of the Fazer 800, Ducati Multistrada 1200S or BMW F800GS bear much resemblance to the reality?

Especially if you don’t own a bike right now, UK motorbike hire specialists like us enable you to sample a motorcycle that you may have long been curious about, at a sensible price.

It’s the perfect time for a continental trip

Have you long fancied embarking on an ambitious journey from Land’s End to John o’ Groats, or do you have an itinerary for a tour of the all-time great European motorcycling roads planned, but no motorbike with which to do it?

In that case, you need to know about South East Motorcycle Hire. It’s important to inform us beforehand if you intend to take your hired bike outside the UK, but otherwise, the continent can be very much your oyster this spring and summer.

You really shouldn’t miss the chance to take advantage of UK motorbike hire this year. Get in touch with our team today, and you can find out more about the wealth of benefits of our service, as well as the many intriguing, thrilling and highly rated motorcycles that we allow you to hire.
