Eazyriderz Safety Advice and box policy
by Colin Oneill on January 12, 2023
A quick note on e-scooter boxes.
Please don't be alarmed if it looks like your box has been opened and resealed. This is for several reasons.
Firstly we sell predominantly European scooter brands, so often they ship with EU plugs,we have to open the boxes to include a UK plug.
Secondly, our products have usually been shipped from Europe and Asia. Before they get delivered to you, they sometimes have to be checked by UK customs or our own quality control team.
Finally, similarly to car batteries, if e-scooters sit unused and uncharged for to long can damage the long term battery health. If an e-scooter has been in our possesion for over six months we have to open the box to charge the scooter. This ensures you are getting a scooter in perfect condition.
The boxes sometimes have a little bit of wear and tear due to transportation which doesn't damage the scooter inside which are well protected. Some of our products have a box within the outer box for more protection.
