BUYER RESPONSIBILITIES AND MAINTENANCE

Read the battery care and warnings information before your purchase - click here

No manufacturer will honour warranties for products that have been misused, so please operate your vehicle in a manner that is in keeping with the capabilities for which it was designed.

None of our products are manufactured for off-road, MX, racing or trick riding. This will be regarded as misuse, although these can be fixed, they will NOT be covered by our warranty.

From time to time maintenance is needed o be performed by the owner. This includes checking for loose connections, loose bolts and nuts, lubing the chain, setting the brakes, setting chain, tightening the headset bearings etc. This are some (but not all) of the maintenance required to be done by the owner to get long and enjoyable use from their scooter.

Charge your batteries after each ride and NEVER let the batteries run completely flat - Do not push-ride the scooter if the battery power is diminishing, as this will cause an overload in the controller, which is not covered by warranty.

As the batteries lifespan is dependent on the user and charging intervals, Batteries are only covered for 90 days .

Defects resulting from misuse,abuse or negligence will void any warranty.

Always wear safety gear (Helmets) when riding any of our scooters, Go boards and cars.

Never leave any of the products charging overnight. They should always be in plain site when charging and do not charge while unattended.

Although we pride ourselves with strict quality control, some factors are beyond out control so warnings and safe use should always be followed.

There has been press about the  Goboard/Hoverboard/Self Balancing scooter from various suppliers catching alight recently in the UK. The full details are below. Please note this and make sure that you adhere to all the warnings and operating instructions.

Although we have done all in our power to ensure that we bring you the best quality, we are not responsible for any harm or damage caused.

BATTERY WARRANTY (90 DAYS)

As the batteries lifespan is dependent on the user and charging intervals, Batteries are only covered for 90 days . These are guidelines that one should follow:

We do not guarantee the batteries for longer than 3 months. For the first charge, batteries should be charged for a period of 8-12 hours.

From there onwards, batteries should be recharged for a period of 8 hours minimum - leaving the charger plugged in to the scooter will not cause any damage to the batteries, although the charger is at risk of being damaged due to a power surge.

If not being used, the batteries must be charged frequently (at least once a month) and not left standing empty for lengthy periods of time. If left uncharged for a lengthy period the battery will no longer produce the necessary charge needed to run the product efficiently.

Charge your batteries after each ride and NEVER let the batteries run completely flat - Do not push-ride the scooter if the battery power is diminishing, as this will cause an overload in the controller, which is not covered by warranty.

MADD GEAR MGP SCOOTER WARRANTY

What is covered under Madd Gear manufacturer’s warranty:

*Wear & Tear Explained: Madd Gear products are tough, durable and tested to withstand normal use but are not impervious to damage. Madd Gear scooter decks are extruded from 6061 Aluminum and then Heat Treated to strengthen the material further. This material is light and strong but is also softer than cement and stone often found in ledges at skate parks. Grinding the scooter deck along these surfaces will wear away the material and compromise the construction. This is not classed as a manufacturer’s defect and will not be covered under warranty.


All warranty claims are reviewed on a case by case basis and can only be processed if you retain your proof of purchase or receipt. If you would like to file a warranty claim, please contact the retailer where you purchased the product from or alternatively contact us here.

 

The Madd Gear Manufacturer’s warranty covers all manufacturing defects or faults but excludes misuse of the product, modifications to the product in any way including incorrect installation or damage caused by wear and tear.
