My son came to me one day and said, “let’s start a business selling UTV parts.” Now we have talked about other businesses in the past, but as I listened to his reasoning I could hear the passion in his voice. He gave me reasons like “we can help people and there is a need, and somebody needs to do it!” He came up with some good reasons why and some really good ideas of how, but as I was listening I realized the best reason for doing it was this was something we could do together. A real father/son business, doing all the things we really enjoy doing. “They will have access to the parts they need and in the shop, we can install these parts, as well as do maintenance and repair,” he went on to say.
Then it struck me, of all his reasons for doing this he didn’t talk once about making money, profit margins, startup cost, you know business stuff. Of course we had that talk later, but I was so proud of him for that because it wasn’t all just about money. He wanted to help people enjoy the hobby a little more and get more people out riding.
I gave him that fatherly “you know it won’t be easy and it will take a lot of time and commitment!” He gave me that typical son response, “yes Dad, I know.” I could tell this was something he really wanted to do and of course I would never pass up an opportunity for us to work together and have a business where we can take care of customers, make new friends, spend time together and have a little fun.
So, there you have it; Northeast Powersports was created. We came up with the name, designed the logo and the business took off. People began to come in the door and say things like “this was needed” and “I’m glad you’re here” and “about time somebody done this,” so we knew we were on the right track.
I have always believed in my son and I hope you will believe in Northeast Powersports and allow us to earn your business. We carefully choose the best manufactures to work with in order to offer you the highest quality parts. It is also our mission to provide you with industry leading customer service. If you’re looking for UTV parts and accessories or maybe you need someone to install the parts on your side by side, we are here to help. If you’re looking for a place to have your maintenance done or maybe you had a little bit too much fun and rolled the thing, well, we can help with that too.
We look forward to meeting you!
