If you had asked Scott and Karlie Redden if they saw themselves leaving their jobs to run Halifax Motorsports as a full-time business several years ago, the answer would probably have been no. What started as a small part-time business has since turned into a thriving full-time business for the husband and wife team.
In 2006, Scott and Karlie Redden, while having full-time careers in the communications and automotive sectors, came up with the idea for a small business that was severely lacking in Nova Scotia. As motorcycle, ATV and snowmobile enthusiasts, Scott and Karlie noticed that, for people wanting to break into their favourite sport, purchasing the parts, accessories and apparel you need for the sport was often intimidating and could be quite a challenge.
So, armed with little more than a credit card and their knowledge of the equipment involved, Scott and Karlie purchased their first batch of inventory. Their philosophy was, and continues to be, that the products they sell must be good quality, affordable and items they would be confident selling to friends or family.
What makes Halifax Motorsports unique is that the owners and staff are enthusiasts too, so customers feel confident dealing with people who share their passion and always have their best interest in mind. As Karlie says, “our customers are our friends and we strive to provide friendly, personal and honest service.” Karlie goes on to say, “we understand customers are spending their hard earned ‘fun money,’ and at Halifax Motorsports, we want that to be a pleasurable experience.”
In addition to excellent customer service, Halifax Motorsports also supports the industry by sponsoring local motorcycle racing talents, Snowmobile and ATV clubs around the province.
Halifax Motorsports stocks several lines of aftermarket parts, accessories for motorcycles, ATVs, side by sides and snowmobiles for all brands as well as offering maintenance and accessory installation with on-line ordering available at www.halifaxmotorsports.com. There is also several complete lines of apparel for both men and women and, as Karlie says with a smile, “there is no reason our female customers can’t look stylish in hot pink while enjoying their favourite pastime.”
As they look back on years, Scott and Karlie are pleased with how their idea has grown into a thriving business and they look forward to offering their customers the best service they can for many years to come.
