Scooter Service and Warranty
We service most makes and models of Chinese scooters and ATV’s. We perform minor maintenance to major repairs. Our service is limited to scooters and ATV's purchased here in our store. We have been asked if we will perform repairs on scooters we did not sell. The answer is, NO due to parts availability and technical information we are only able to service scooters or ATV's purchased in the store.
We have been asked if we will assemble and prep a scooter that was purchased online. The answer is, no, we will not, but we will probably ask why would you want to go that route. Yes, the scooter may be cheaper, but when you add the shipping, and charges for assembly and prep, it will likely be more expensive than buying one here and you essentially have no warranty. We provide a limited warranty on what we sell. Likewise, your warranty will be provided by whoever sold the scooter to you. Problem is they are likely 100’s if not 1000’s of miles away.
Spring prep service is $54.95. This includes an oil change with synthetic oil, charging the battery, adjusting tire pressure, inspection and road test. This is only offered to scooters and ATV's purchased in store.
It’s not uncommon to have a plugged carburetor from sitting with gas in it. We highly recommend draining the fuel from the carburetor in the fall or using an additive such as Sta-bil or Sea Foam in the fuel. The above spring prep package with a carburetor removal and cleaning is $159.95. In some cases if the carburetor is plugged badly, it is more cost effective to replace that to repair. We have them in stock.
Our shop labor rate is $69.97 below 50cc and $79.97 above 50cc.
It’s no secret that some of the Chinese scooters have a bad reputation. Fact is, while some of them are low quality, the majority are just as good as the Japanese or Taiwan makes. Where the problem lies is in the internet sales. You cannot buy a Japanese scooter such as a Honda or Yamaha online. Same goes for most Taiwan makes. You have to buy these through a dealer with an actual building and service area. This insures the scooter is properly uncrated, assembly completed, fluids checked, tire pressures checked, bolts checked for torque, battery properly charged, etc. Many of the Chinese scooters can be bought online very cheap and delivered to your home. Some are almost fully assembled and some are almost like scooter kits. Either way, some amount of assembly is required and a full inspection performed with any needed adjustments. Most people do not know this and are not able to do this either because they lack the experience or the tools. So these scooters are uncrated and ridden before they are truly road worthy. This creates a bad riding experience or a continued system failures. If you properly prep the Chinese scooter or buy one from a dealer that properly preps it, your new scooter will last for many years and many thousands of miles. Most dealers that sell Chinese scooters also buy from an importer that buys the better quality scooters and sells through a growing network of dealers. We are currently a dealer for both Propel and Icebear. You cannot call either company and buy direct. They will refer you to a dealer just like the Japanese brands. This effort says that these companies are here to stay and they are working hard to clean up the reputation that has come from companies that are here today and gone tomorrow. We have been in business since 1991, BBB A+ rated, and recognized by the city and local Chamber of Commerce for our business ethics.
OUR SCOOTERS AND ATV’S ARE "READY TO RIDE" AND BACKED BY A LIMITED PARTS/SERVICE/WARRANTY SUPPORT!
THE SCOOTER OR ATV WILL COME FULLY ASSEMBLED AND TESTED.
READY TO RIDE!
THAT LEVEL OF SERVICE IS NOT AVAILABLE WHEN BUYING "ONLINE".
