Is this hearsay, or is this first hand information?

The financing company took back the scooters. I think it will b very difficult, but not impossible.

Scooter Model(s): current ride, ahh, the choices!
My decision to close is nothing to do with any finance company. I have just chosen to move on. And it feels very good and liberating.

I AM HERE! Scooter Guru Two Wheels Rockland Inc. is available to do service and repairs. Same address as Metro Scooter. I am a trained Piaggio/Vespa technician. Please give a call and spread the word. 201-660-7714. "Like" Scooter Guru Two Wheels Rockland on Facebook...search Charles Minichiello...Scooter Guru Two Wheels Rockland. Hell I am sponsoring one of the stops on the "escape from New York" ride on June 27th. Other than throwing a good party, they don't call me the scooter guru for nothing. Thanks

Scooter Guru,
Very glad you can service Piaggio scooters. I just bought a 2009 Piaggio MP3 basically brand new 121 miles but could not find any technicians and was thinking of selling it already. You are a distance from me but at least you're in business I can always have it towed down to you if need be. Will you be doing winter storage as metro Scooter used to do as well?

After working with Charles for seven years I have learned that there is nothing he cannot do.

Vintage scooters are a different animal from a modern Vespa so plan on getting a bigger bill. We tried to avoid some vintage jobs because owners were not realistic about the issues. If you are realistic then I'm sure Charles will take good care of you.

Charles has closed up shop and all reach-outs to him have gone unanswered. Does anyone know any other mechanics in this area?
Help! :|
