Warranty & Liability Policy
If you submit a valid claim under this warranty, Yinke Scooters NZ will either repair, replace, or refund at its own discretion. Warranty benefits are in addition to rights provided under New Zealand consumer laws.
Yinke Scooters NZ undertakes that all new electric scooters are warranted to the Original Buyer against manufacturing defects in materials and/or workmanship for the following periods:
Motor(s) & Controllers: 12-Months
Battery & Display: 12-Months (battery will decrease overtime)
For 12-months starting from the purchase date of your electric scooter, you are covered by our warranty against manufacturing defects. YINKE SCOOTERS NZ will diagnose any problem and ship spare parts free of charge (for successful warranty claims) for self-repair. More complicated repairs can be performed at a Yinke Scooters service partner in your area. Any potential cost for shipping the scooter to a service centre is the responsibility of the purchaser. The costs/inconvenience caused by the loss of use of the product is not covered whilst the warranty procedure takes place.
Terms of Limited Warranty
This limited warranty is not meant to suggest or imply that the scooter cannot be broken or will last forever. It does mean that the scooter is covered subject to the terms of the limited warranty. The purchaser must adhere to the manufacturer’s instruction manual.
Damage resulting from normal wear and tear, including the results of fatigue, is not covered. Fatigue damage is a symptom of the frame being worn out through normal use. It is one kind of normal wear and tear, and it is the owner’s responsibility to inspect his/her scooter. Damage resulting from improper assembly or maintenance, or from the installation of parts and accessories not compatible with the YINKE electric scooter, is not covered. All labour charges for non-warranty servicing are the responsibility of the purchaser.
In the event that the processing of a warranty claim requires shipping, any such shipping charges are the responsibility of the purchaser.
For warranty transportation costs, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

YINKE SCOOTERS NZ reserves the right to decline any warranty claim if the above conditions are not met.
