A firm of estate agents is using Honda’s flexible and reliable SES125 Dylan to get across London and Sussex quickly and efficiently.
Choices estate agents has offices in Caterham, Coulsdon, Crawley, Croydon, Horley, Redhill and Sutton. They feel that the Dylan gives them the ultimate urban tool to get around town and meet viewing appointments on time.
Choices went to Doble Motorcycles in Coulsdon, who supplied one SES125 Dylan for a three-month trial period. The scooter is finished in Choices’ smart house colours of red and yellow.
Paul Styles from Dobles explained: "Choices has a number of branches in the south-east and if the trial period goes well they may put one in each outlet. The trial period started about a month ago and it works for them as it not only do they get through traffic rather than being stuck in a car, but when it’s parked outside the branch it’s a real head-turner."
Simon Shinerock established Choices because of the terrible service he experienced when dealing with estate agents as a customer. He explains the logic behind using the scooter: "We’ve found that in somewhere like Croydon where there’s so much traffic congestion we can save around 40 minutes of travelling time. We’re evaluating the idea of using more scooters, which – if successful – will see us introduce a scooter as an alternative mode of transport for select negotiators to go into built-up areas. We’ve found that the vendors like the idea and it’s an environmentally sound choice compared to a car on some journeys. We will evaluate the scooter until the end of the year and then make a decision. We may integrate the scooter with more traditional transport methods, which would mean we could order up to seven of them for our branches."
The Dylan ensure that Choices stays one step ahead of the opposition, proving that in this day and age of ever-increasing traffic and congestion charges, a two-wheeler is the best way to travel across the urban sprawl.
