Garland's motorbike shop stock being sold on eBay after closure
4:30pm Saturday 8th September 2012 in News
PEOPLE across the country can bid for a bike or haggle for a helmet as a recently closed local motorbike business' stock is sold off on eBay.
Garland’s in Haverfordwest, one of west Wales’ biggest motorbike dealerships, closed last month after more than 25 years in business at its Old Hakin Road site.
Car trader Paul Davies bought the stock from liquidators and is revving up his profits using the online auction site – an option not as unusual as it first appears.
Paul has made a roaring success of selling cars on eBay, eventually getting rid of his Llanelli dealership to concentrate on internet sales.
“It’s quite common – you can sell anything on eBay. I sell cars on eBay, that’s my living.
“This will be sold in sections – motorcycles and equipment – people make appointments to come and view and then make bids. I’m hoping to sell it all in the next couple of weeks,” said Paul.
Included in the eBay listing, which has a price of £100,000, are Ducati, Triumph, Yamaha and Suzuki bikes and parts along with Peugeot and Kymco scooters.
Garland’s owner Dai Garland was contacted by the Western Telegraph at the time of closure but was unavailable to comment.
