Statement (15/11/20)

It is with mixed emotion that I advise that Event Scooter Hire are withdrawing from providing Hire Services at Events.

This decision has not been made lightly. We started 2020 full of optimism, with the purchase of an additional truck and trailer, an additional 20 brand new scooters and brand new uniforms. In fact, we took delivery of our almost new Mercedes Benz Actros Prime Mover in Melbourne on the way home from Wimmera Field Days in March 2020. Little did we know at that point that Wimmera would be the last event we would ever do.

Our plan had always been to develop the business to eventually sell as a going concern. This would have meant that for the 17 events we service annually, the changeover would have been seamless.

Covid-19 has obviously nullified all this planning. Even if events were to resume tomorrow, it would take many years for our core clientele of the over 70’s age group to confidently attend events in the previous volumes.

Therefore, we have elected to completely withdraw from the industry. At 71 years of age, the time has come to retire.

Therefore, it is our intention to offer by Online Auction at our premises in North Wagga Wagga on Sunday 28 February, all plant and equipment including 132 mobility scooters, 60 wheelchairs, 80 strollers, in addition to 3 trucks, 5 trailers, 3 caravans, Landcruiser dual cab ute, forklift, gazebos, workshop equipment and shelving. Our depot at North Wagga (only 5 years old) will come available for commercial lease.

Louise and I are immensely proud to have had the opportunity to provide mobility services at events across 4 states including 2 Royal Shows and many other varied events. Louise and I have enjoyed serving the public, enabling people to attend, who would otherwise not have been able to without the provision of our service. Over the years, we have received many letters and emails from clients expressing their appreciation of our service. This has been personally rewarding. We will miss the annual catch-up with a wonderful appreciative clientele.

Louise and I would like to thank our clients, the administrations of the various events we serviced, their staff, their committee and volunteers for their friendship and assistance over the years. 

Regards
Gordon Moore
Event Scooter Hire
