WHO WE ARE:
National Powersports Distributors (formerly The Collectable Trader) is a company
founded upon the belief that everybody should have a chance to enjoy the freedom
that motorcycling allows.
WHAT WE DO:
We put every motorcycle that we sell through a rigorous inspection process and you
see all the results. Our full disclosure policy and comprehensive inspection process
will ensure that you know everything about the vehicles that we sell. We take pride
in offering our vehicles on-line, and have positioned ourselves as specialists with
the process. We know that buying a vehicle sight unseen can be a scary proposition,
and we are constantly working to improve our listings and provide you with honest,
In 2002 Nathan and Amy Sanel had decided that the money they were investing into
their mutual funds would be better spent buying an old motorcycle and fixing it
up in their garage. From those humble beginnings National Powersports was born.
Deciding to sell on the internet rather than in a traditional showroom setting allowed
them to develop a comprehensive system of safety checks and condition reports that
allowed their customers to know the exact condition of the motorcycle even if they
were located across the country.
Originally their emphasis was on vintage bikes, but soon the requests for modern
bikes started to come in from all over the world. The depth of information that
was marketed about the motorcycle was something that was not being done, even in
traditional dealer locations. This allowed National Powersports to begin selling
all types and years of Motorcycles, ATV's, Snowmobiles, Scooters and Watercraft.
Since starting, National Powersports has outgrown their location 3 times and the
growth continues to this day. In 2006 they moved to 701 Riverwood Drive, Pembroke
NH to a 15,000 square foot facility. In this location they opened their first true
According to Nathan Sanel, it still is not a traditional dealership. "None of our
team is paid by commission. We put a full condition report on each vehicle and the
price that we need to get for it. We duplicate our on-line buying experience. It's
a great place to look at a huge selection of motorcycles without the pressure. Because
we sell so many vehicles on-line, walk ins are not our only avenue for sales so
we don't have to high-pressure the people that visit us. Our pricing is extremely
competitive because we work on a smaller margin and turn our inventory more than
the industry standards."
National Powersports success is due to one primary factor. The first line on the
company service statement is "Tell the truth". That is the guiding principal for
everything that they do. Nathan says, "At the end of the day, its not just about
making money. It is about building a company that has integrity. The group of people
who love riding are like family. I sleep well knowing that everybody gets treated
the same way and was told the full truth about the vehicle they purchased here."
In the July 2006 Entrepreneur Magazine National Powersports was referenced in an
article titled "Star Treatment" and recognized for their outstanding customer service
for sales on eBay. The company has also been profiled in several books including
the eBay for Dummies by Marsha Collier. The company currently has 18 employees and
is experiencing excellent growth.
