Event Scooter Hire are closing down and the Proprietors are retiring. (Full statement below).

All plant and equipment including 152 mobility scooters, 60 wheelchairs, 80 strollers, 3 trucks, 5 trailers, 3 caravans, Landcruiser dual cab ute, forklift, gazebos, workshop equipment and shelving will be sold by Online Auction on Sunday 28 February 2021. Inspection of all items can be made at 2-6 William Street, North Wagga Wagga by appointment. Full details will be available on this website soon.

Statement

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

This decision has not been made lightly. We started 2020 full of optimism, with brand new uniforms, an additional 20 brand new scooters and the purchase of an additional truck and trailer. In fact, we took delivery of the new 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 has 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 almost 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 152 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
