“Brilliant service, great bikes and friendly staff. Top stuff”

Joe Freeman.

 

“Dear Peter, I just wanted to tell you how much I really enjoyed hiring the BMW s1000rr back in May this year. I was so pleased to find somebody locally that I could hire bikes from. Your prices are very competitive and the service you provide is excellent. I feel like I’ve always known you and that makes your business unique.Thanks again Peter for an excellent experience, on a beautiful motorcycle, for a very reasonable price. I have recommended you to all my biker mates.”

Andy Flanders.

 

“I just wanted to thank you for my GS1200 rental bike a few weeks ago. The bike was in great condition and the whole hire process was easy and stress-free. I have recommended you on the forum where I am active. By the way I was so impressed by the GS1200 I will very likely buy one shortly if possible. Can you remember what sort of screen your white one has fitted to it? Because it was perfect.”

 

“Just a quick note Peter to say a big thank you for the loan of the two bikes over the weekend – the service matched the quality of the bikes which is saying something! Wishing you continued success and looking forward to renting again sometime in the summer.”

Best regards, Andrew.

Great service from a friendly and helpful company, best hire prices around, in fact I haven’t found anywhere cheaper. Liked the bike so much I went and bought one myself.

Leonard Carter.

 

G’Day Pete, As the same as last year great service, and the new BMW R1200GS we hired is one fab bike mate. Pam say’s a big thanks for the cake and tea. We will book the RT for next year in the next two months. Good on your mate.

Steve @ Pam from Aus.

 

Thanks for everything, Peter.  Really enjoyed the weekend on 2 wheels – it has been a while since I have been on a bike and it was great to have another chance to go for a ride. Also, just wanted to say thank you for how easy everything has been for organising it – and the delivery and pick up make such a difference. Hope we get a chance to do it all again soon.

Dicken.

 

I hired a bike over the last weekend from here, great friendly service, top bikes will definitely be back!! Peter is very friendly, likes a chat and makes great coffee!!

Paul Slingo.

 

Really good service, so quick. Brand new clean bike. Would definitely recommend. It really is ‘motorcycle hire made easy’!

Philip Skeet.

 

Great bike Pete, at a great price. Will be back when the weather gets better. Cheers mate.

Rob Low.

 

Bike hire made easy for sure! Outstanding bikes, clean and like new. Very easy to hire, the hole process went with out a hitch. From the first email and booking deposit to signing and handing over the keys. Start up a pick up service from the Airport Peter, and I be the first to take advantage of this!

Many thanks for the hole experience.

Wayne Fisher.

 

Thanks for making it happen Peter. Easy and hassle free i would recommend. That BMW is amazing!

Richard Turner.

 

I have hired bikes twice from WSMH and both times were brilliant! Great guy great service and awesome bikes!

Luke Hedges.

 

Great choice of bikes always in top condition, Pete always gives a warm welcome and cuppa tea. Just being able to get back on 2 wheels when ever I need it has been a god send, if its for an hour ,weekend or long trip abroad then it’s all possible and hassle free. “Just don’t crash em” and you’ll be back for more.

Mark John Smith.

 

A big Merry Christmas to West Sussex Motorcycle Hire. See you all in the summer 2014. Pete will hire the BMW R1200RT new one mate! Same dates as before.

Steve @ Pam from Aus.

 

Great guys, great bikes. Use them!

Simon Townsend.

 

Three of us hired bikes from here none of which missed a beat on a week across the alps ridding 12hr days! Lovely guy and genuine warm welcome! No classroom lecture about speeding etc just a bit of advice and a warm reminder that the bikes were our responsibility.  We will all return summer 2014 and probably 15,16,17:)  Run by a biker with genuine knowledge which is reassuring when it comes to motorcycle rental.

Alex Sanderson.

 

Great place this, most helpful guy I know when I need advice on bikes and always plenty of bikes a available to hire. Top marks :)

Steve Dale

 

Had a great time on a bike from West Sussex Motorcycle Hire. Very easy hire from start to finish. I will be back when the weather gets warmer. If your thinking about hiring a bike look know furfur than these guys.

Darren Coombes

 

Not sure how I post a testimonial but thanks for another fantastic time on your V-Strom which produced that silly 1,000 smile that I thought was a distant past.  Absolutely first class service from a first class gent – as per Arnie
I’ll be back!!!!!

Andy Brunton.  MBE

 

I would like to thank Peter for my magnificent ride in Scotland. I would strongly recommend his service to my mates.

Dimitar Kambarev.

 

Hi Pete

Mate thanks again for the bikes it was an epic adventure.

Phil Cook

 

Hi Peter   Just wanted to say thanks for the hire of the DL650 Grand Tourer – after a few years off from riding it was great to get back on two wheels. The hiring process and insurance was very straight forward, relaxed and friendly. The bike was great and the panniers being included in the price was a real bonus.   The roads of Northern France lived up to our expectations and the bike delivered a smooth ride. I’d recommend you to anyone wanting to hire.

John FitzGerald

 

Peter I wanted to post this testimonial to you for all your help in arranging to help me “live the dream”. I’ve been riding bikes since 1962, and always hoped for the opportunity to “go for a putt” in England. Thanks for your perfectly prepared 1255 Suzuki, and your patient and thorough GPS guidance for a perfect tour through south Britain. I had a blast, and can’t wait to see you again for the Isle of Man and on to Scotland I’ll recommend you to all I know Cheers.

Evan, Long Beach, California

 

Hired a GSXR 600 for 5 days to go across Europe. Had great time (except for the rain) bike was brilliant will defiantly hire again and few of my friends to . Would recommend to anyone . Thanks peter hopefully see you again soon.

Lee R Skinner.

 

Brilliant check it out.

Paul Davis

 

These guys know their onions, the bikes are well maintained and clean and updated regularly. We rode the IOM track including mad Sunday on the Beemer 1200’s and did 1800 miles around the UK without any issues . You get full breakdown and insurance cover. You’d be mad not too. I researched the product all over the UK and these guys are the best out there and they are professional friendly knowledgeable and laid back. Get in there and get out there.

Phil Cook. From Australia.

 

Best hire company around, fantastic friendly service and great bikes, i bought a Sinnis Apache 2 days after i hired one. Fab bikes, fab service, fab bloke. Just brilliant!

Barbara Elizabeth Willis.

 

Had a brilliant weekend of trouble free hire with the V-Storm and the R1200GS from Peter, the whole experience was friendly, professional and above all trouble free. Will be back in August for a week just as soon as I have made my mind up from The GS or the shinny RT. Well worth the drive folks.

Antony Barnett.

 

Best motorcycle hire company, AMAZING service.

Gary Burt

 

Hey Pete. Thanks again for a fantastic service. Bike was awesome as you guaranteed, maybe one day I’ll be as good as you 😉

Leonard Carter

 

West Sussex Motorcycle Hire. Thank you for providing the Shades Off crew with a superb motorcycle for the Millau trip! Thank you for all your last minute help! More photo and videos to follow soon! We highly recommend.

Sam Shadesoff.

 

Hey, I borrowed the S1000RR for the Le Mans 24hr last weekend. Just wanted to pass on my thanks for Top Drawer service by West Sussex Motorcycle Hire. Peter is a fine fella, and a pleasure to deal with. I won’t bother looking anywhere else when I need to hire a bike. Tell all your friends!

Darren Gray.

 

Great choice of bikes, all in great condition. Fantastic people to deal with. I rented a Wee-Strom 650 for a 10 day ride to Switzerland. The bike was a perfect choice with more luggage space than I could fill. Peter was a real pro every step if the way.

Joseph Gorny.

 

Hi Peter and Lynn, Just wanted to say thank you for a great service you gave me and the wife. Didn’t like giving you our card details by email, but all went without a hitch. fantastic service, great bikes, fab people. Will see you both next year for sure.

Rob and Jane from Aus.

 

We had a great time with the R1200GS and RT we hired from West Sussex Motorcycle Hire. Best hire company around by far. Nice one guys.

Peter and Keith.

 

I recently hired a BMW R1200GS from West Sussex Motorcycle Hire and i was very impressed by the helpful and professional service that i received. Peter has a diverse range of current, well-maintained models that are available at an extremely competitive price. I would highly recommend this service to anyone considering bike hire. A big thanks to all the team, and see you soon for more of the same!!

Henry King.

 

Hi! I had a lot of fun. Thanks.

Yoshimi Kitamura.

 

Guys just a quick thank you for a great service. Peter you are the bollocks mate, had a great time getting back into biking. Thank you for all your help and patients with me. Be back in the summer!

Richard Wise.

 

Had to write and thank West Sussex Motorcycle Hire for a FANTISIC service. I hired a BMW R1200RT as thinking of buying one myself. I got a puncture on my own bike while ridding down to them. I told Peter why I was late, and while out on hire he fixed my puncture, and charged me nothing for it. TOP guy! Also loved the RT!

Harry King.

 

Always a friendly welcome from Pete (and Barney!) and a great range of bikes for everyone to hire from Sinnis 125’s through to BMW 1200’s all at great prices.

Richard Wright.

 

Will be hiring my 3rd bike from them this week. Peter provides a really professional and friendly service and cheaper than the main dealers too. None of the snobby main dealer attitude just honest advice and guidance.

Antony Barnett.

 

I just wanted to thank you for the service I received whilst hiring the Suzuki 1255 last weekend. The bike was faultless and performed fantastically. What a machine!! You were all friendly and passionate about the bikes which shows in every area of the great service you provide. Picking the bike up and returning it couldn’t be easier.

Thanks to you and your brilliant bike hire I had a PERFECT weekend.!!

Nathan Levick.

 

Over in Turkey now. Started work today, again had a great time and that had a lot to do with the bikes and the way you run your business, helping us out, thanks mate we will catch up again

Bob Bell.

 

Thanks Peter for the Honda NC750X returned to you yesterday after an eleven days rental in which I rode 3100 miles around England, Wales & the Scottish borders. The bike you provided ran like a dream – no problems. Fitting/wiring my sat nav proved to be invaluable to me. Having a bike with hard panniers and the ‘tank’ storage was a good choice for a tour.

I really like the way you handle customer service and if I decide to rent a bike in the future will be in touch. Thanks again

Peter Brown.

 

From Norway and wanted to go touring in UK. Goggled MC-rental, and picked this one. Easy access from Gatwick, 1 hour by train. Just talked trough mail but felt taking care of and every question I had was answered. GREAT. Excellent service and great bikes. We rented two Suzuki V-Strom 650ccm. great bikes and well maintained, clean and updated .Was a bit sceptical to drive “only” a 650, being used to a 1200ccm, but that V-Strom blew me away. Great service-minded staff and what can I say; beside give them 5 stars. We had a great tour around south of England and Wales. A big thank you to West Sussex motorcycle rental. For bikers, by bikers, we will be back that’s for sure.

Eric Edler. Norway.

 

WSMH made Helen and I very welcome. We hired the NC750X which is an excellent mile eater and very comfy two up. 75mpg average over the weekend!
We will definitely be coming back and hiring the same bike as it suited us perfectly. We’ll be adding GPS next time too.

Many thanks, Austin and Helen.

 

Dear Peter,

Just to say thank you for the excellent service you provided  me with. This is what I would add to your website:

Peter and Lynn at West Sussex Motorcycle Hire provide an excellent and very friendly service and made me feel welcome the moment I arrived there after a long journey from abroad. They have a wide choice of motorbikes and can give expert advice. Fully recommended.

 Jonathan

 

Hi Peter just letting you know how pleased I was with the bike I just hired off you, the Suzuki Bandit 650 It didn’t miss a beat the whole trip. Also thank you very much for putting the deposit back into my bank account, if I do another trip I will definitely hire a bike from you also thanks to the young lady who waited for us to bring the bikes bike.

Gerry Dennison from Aus.

 

Just dropped back my first rental with West Sussex Motorcycle hire and couldn’t be happier with the service! Friendly, concise and thorough – everything was brilliant. Peter talked me through the bike, lent me gloves with the offer of more warm clothing (it is very cold – I should have taken them!) and showed me some fun routes to practice on in the South Downs. The bike took getting used to but that is to be expected as I’m a learner and still a bit nervous. These guys put me at ease though and I had a couple of great solo rides. Thanks so much and I will definitely be back soon!

Rosie Broad.

 

Hi Peter,

Firstly, many thanks again for providing such an excellent and friendly service and I was absolutely delighted with the BMW K1600 GTLE.

Martin Tutcher.

 

Second year running hiring a bike from WSM – last year was the RT and this year just dropped off the GS after a trip to the Highlands of Scotland. Couldn’t be happier with the service I receive from them – nothing is too much trouble. I will and have recommended this place to my friends. Already looking forward to the next rental – thanks again Peter, see you next time !!
Cheers Jason.

Jason Gicquel.

 

Dear Pete, hiring the Sinnis max 2 125cc after doing my CBT test was the best decision I’ve made. to begin with, It was a nerve wrecking start to get on a bike but Pete reassured me and gave the confidence I needed as I am still a novice driver. On my last day of the hire I did crash it and owned up to my mistake, I was happy to pay for the damage I had caused because the bike was in my ownership at the time. Pete was very professional in handling the matter and was happy to give me a new bike in the Sinnis range, he also showed me how to handle the bike and got me riding again with confidence! Thank you for being understanding and supportive. P.S See you soon, when I can ride a bigger bike.

Adderley Pelly.

 

All the bikes looked in pristine condition as was the one I went with – an R1200RT. I also turned up needing to be fully kitted (jackets, trousers boots, gloves, helmet) – they had a wide selection of branded quality kit – i found my size and it all served me dandy through some frankly pretty awful weather I had to ride through in the days that followed. The bikes, the gear, the team and service – all – was top notch. Highly recommended.

Marc Hardy

 

Excellent. Simple & honest with top quality bikes. Thanks

James Crawford

 

Great Service, Nice Bike, Nice People.

I needed to hire a bike urgently as my own bike suffered electrical problems 4 days before I was due to go on a week-long advanced riding course.

After a quick internet search, I phoned West Sussex Motorcycle Hire and explained the situation. They were able to provide me with a suitable bike, including top-box and panniers within the short timescale required. The booking and payment process was explained to me over the phone, including what documentation I had to provide, and couldn’t have been easier. They also delivered the bike to me, and collected it afterwards, as I was working right up to the start of the course and couldn’t get to Chichester (from Bristol) in time to collect it myself. The delivery service is chargeable, but it was worth every penny as I would have lost two days work if I’d collected and returned the bike myself.

The bike was in excellent condition when it arrived, low mileage and very clean and polished.

Dealing with Addy and Peter was easy, and if I need to hire a bike again I’ll go straight to West Sussex Motorcycle Hire.

Andrew Cox.

 

Hello Peter,

Just a short note to thank you for the use/rental of
your bikes at WSM.  Brian, Stu & I had an amazing time in SW England & would
recommend your business to anyone considering renting bikes there.  Thanks
again,

Wayne Bond,  Vancouver, BC, Canada

 

I hired a Honda 500 off you a few months ago, English guy living in New Zealand, back for a visit.

Thanks for a great hassle free service. The Honda went well and I enjoyed every minute.

Cheers

Glen.

 

Hired a bike to go over to France for a long weekend, very friendly & helpful, couldn’t ask for more, the bike was brilliant as was the price to hire it, highly recommended & will be coming back again, many thanks

Lee. D. Ashton.

 

Peter
just to say thank you so much for your great advise and support. I had your Triumph Tiger for the weekend and it brought a smile back to my face !  Keep on the good work, “I will be back ”
regards
M Schmidt  Emsworth

 

Having had a fabulous time on the Tiger some weeks ago I just want to say again what a fantastic place you have and how much I enjoyed my weekend in Devon and Exmoor on one of your BMW R 1200 GS TE. The bike was in top condition and an absolute  joy to ride. The sat nav was needed so I did not get lost in the Moors and the pannier boxes were just right for my camping gear (…. and the odd bottle of ale).
I really valued your advise and fantastic service and I can recommend you and your great team to anyone wanting to hire a bike. So I will have to make it three sometime soon this year.
Manfred

 

Hi Peter, thanks again for supplying such a reliable and good bike for our trip to France (and comfy says the wife).Just wondering if you could tell me the make of that intercom you supplied us?

Bob Kirbyshire

 

Just wanted to say a big thank you Pete for the excellent service you provided, Jason loved the bike and we had a great time out and about.Great service great staff! Hope you enjoyed peppa pig land :-)

Pete Mills.

 

Hi, Pete is top guy we hired two bikes for a trip to Scotland a 1200gs and an Rt. Bikes where brilliant so was the service if you need anything else from them just ask !!

Stan Gregory.

 

Hi Adderly / Pete

Many thanks for the friendly, efficient, and trouble free rental in August. My son and I had a great trip via Black Forest, Alps, and Route Napoleon in South of France. Top end of France is the only bit to grin and bear with.

Also thanks for prompt return of the deposit.

Best regards

Mike.

 

Great Service, Comfortable and friendly environment, made simple, needed to hire for an extra day, was made easy to arrange. Well recommended.

Simon Webster.

 

Just rented a BMW R1200GS for a 10 day holiday with my son as pillion riding through the Pyrenees in Spain and France. Cannot recommend Pete highly enough. He looks after all his bikes personally and takes great pride in them. No silly charges for extras like panniers etc, all included. A first class service from a really nice guy. 1100 miles and the bike never missed a beat even travelling up to to a height of 2,400 Metres.

Phil Ruscoe.

 

Hired a 14 reg BMW R1200GS for the weekend. Bike was perfect, well prepared, clean and sounded fantastic. Service was superb, Pete you’re a superstar.

Can’t recommend them highly enough; First class. They deserve a sixth star!

Nigel Thomas.

 

Friendly and knowledgeable customer service from Addy and Peter. I rented a BMW R1200RT to take to France for a week, and put 1350 miles on it, touring Bordeaux wine country, Armagnac and Calvados region. Trip finished up with three days in Normandy doing the WW2 sites and cemeteries.

The bike was in superb condition, well maintained, and I had a wonderful time, knowing I was well insured, and covered against any breakdowns in France.

Excellent experience with the company – cannot wait for my next trip through them.

RF Kay.

 

“I just wanted to thank you, Peter and Addy for ensuring the hire of your nearly brand new Triumph Tiger 800 for a long weekend to watch the Motor GP at Le Mans was a resounding success.  You were very patient in answering all my questions and I’m very grateful for your suggestion to take out the Triumph which provided both superb performance and real comfort.  Addy completed all the necessary paperwork and credit checking very quickly and it was really good of her to have polished the bike before my departure.  All in all it was a stress free and enjoyable experience and I think the cost for five days motorbike hire, plus insurance and the use of GPS was more than reasonable.  I would recommend your service unreservedly and I’m sure I will be returning many times in the future.

Michael Swan.

 

Rented a v-strom 650 for a week in May. Very reasonable prices – great friendly service – will definitely rent again from them. I can’t praise them enough. Highly recommended.

Mike Harris.

 

Rented a practically brand new Honda NC750X for a week to ride up north to John O’Groats, Scotland. Bike performed flawlessly and Pete was a top bloke, friendly and helpful. Highly recommended

Mohamed Johari.

 

Really friendly and helpful still got the bike (tiger 800) it’s great really enjoying it even in the pants weather..

Jack Rae.

 

Great for Motorcycle hire, Friendly

Robert Fisher.

 

Just had a brilliant day building my confidence on the Sinnis 125. Could not have asked for a better hire experience. I was talked through the bike prior to leaving by Peter who was incredibly helpful. The bike was in great condition and clearly well maintained. Thanks for a great day, see you soon!
