Whether it’s for a flat tire or any other problem. It is often the start of a hell of a struggle.
Yes, behind this simple and pleasant appearance, hides a real puzzle.
Anyone who’s ever tried to change a tire of Electric Scooter UK will know what I’m talking about…
However, with wear and tear, sooner or later, we all have to go through this.
So to better pass this ( small ) test of real trotters. Here are all my tips for repairing your electric scooter!

The 3 options to repair your Electric Scooter UK
What you need to know for an appointment with a repair professional
How to avoid having new problems?
Already, good news: the choice is yours.
Even a lot of choice, since 3 options are available to you: repair in-store, at home, or using an online tutorial for electric vehicles scooter, Hoverboards, Segways
What is the best option to find a Trott like new?
This is what I will explain to you right away.
Of course, this option has the advantage of being the cheapest! An essential point for anyone on a tight budget.
You only have to buy the part to replace, with no labor to pay.
And there are plenty of free tutorials out there online, whether it’s on Youtube or Google. And the more popular your model, the more likely you are to find a tutorial.
But, I warn you: this repair is reserved for the bravest (and the most patient).
Because as I told you, repairing an Electric Scooter UK is not an easy task.
First of all, you will need to be able to diagnose your problem on your own. To know which keywords to type in the search bar.
Sometimes vague requests such as “my electric scooter do not turn on” can be sufficient. But sometimes, no. It will then be necessary to know more precisely the part which poses the problem.
Of course, the difficulty of this diagnosis will depend on the problem encountered. For example, a flat tire will be fingered in the nose.
Then, you will need to have the patience to find the right replacement part to order. And for good reason, some parts are rather complicated to find for an individual.
Moreover, if you have the slightest doubt about the compatibility of a tire for your scooter. Do not hesitate to contact my team by email or by chat.
Finally, it will sometimes be necessary to have some technical skills (and resourcefulness) to follow the tutorials successfully.
And yes it’s always the same story: When you watch the pros doing it seems child’s play. But when we find ourselves alone, facing our machine, it’s not really the same mayonnaise …
So if you have the time and the energy, go for it! You can be proud of the work accomplished. But if you prefer simplicity, I recommend one of the other 2 options instead.
2. REPAIR IN A SPECIALIZED STORE FOR ELECTRIC SCOOTERS
It is undeniably the most popular option among trotters!
And that’s understandable: in-store repairs have many advantages.
First, you have absolutely nothing to do. You drop your device, and they take care of everything. Save time and energy.
Already because they often do in 15 minutes, which is difficult to do in 1 hour. But also that you can just drop it off and then go about your business.
Then you benefit from the expertise of a professional. With a complete and well-done job.
This avoids diagnostic errors (or handling) which could be damaging to your Trott. No, I don’t doubt your talent, but you can never be too careful;)
However, trust is essential to be able to believe in their expertise. So I advise you not to go to a store at random.
And yes, as with cars, we are never safe from a repairer playing on our ignorance. Whether it is to add unnecessary repairs or to inflate the prices.
So be sure to take a look at Google reviews of stores around you. Or ask your acquaintances for a good address.
3. THE REPAIR OF THE SCOOTER AT HOME
Home repair can be ideal if you don’t have time to travel.
No need to plan a detour in your agenda, or be in a hurry to arrive before closing. Everything here adapts to you!
And just like in the store, you benefit from expert advice and easy repair.
However, home repair has its limits.
Already because the repair is often a little more expensive (normal, you have to pay the repairer’s travel costs) .
But above all, because it is not suitable for all problems. The repairer does not have as many parts on hand as in the shop. If something unexpected happens or a new problem is discovered, it may not be able to repair your device at home.
It will therefore be necessary to discuss as best as possible with your repairer before he leaves. He will thus be able to prepare himself as well as possible by taking the right tools with him.
However, be aware that there is always the possibility of a (bad) surprise happening during the repair.
WHAT TO KNOW FOR AN APPOINTMENT WITH A Electric Scooter UK REPAIR PROFESSIONAL
Many of you have probably never been to an electric scooter repairer.
And yet, this is the option that most trotters are heading towards.
So not to leave you in the dark and make your experience as easy as possible. I will explain the process in detail.
First of all, you can go directly to the store, without an appointment.
But it will be a bit like at the hairdresser: haphazard luck. You will be able to get a repair right away. But also having to wait a long time before being taken care of.
To avoid leaving the course of your day to chance, I advise you to make an appointment.
Some shops offer online reservations, others can only be reached by phone.
However, it will be necessary to have a minimum knowledge of your problem for the online reservation. Indeed, you often have to fill in several types of information:
the brand of your electric scooter (easy so far)
and the reason for your arrival: electrical failure, puncture, overhaul, etc … (it gets a bit more complicated).
So if you are really in the dark, I advise you to go by phone instead. You can exchange directly with the repairer.
You can always take a look at the website, to get an idea of the prices before you call.
Once your appointment is confirmed, all you have to do is go to the store at the scheduled time.
After being greeted, you will be able to explain your problem in more detail and benefit from personalized explanations from a professional.
Once the repair has started, the wait will usually not be very long. At most repairers, you can about 30 min to 1-hour maximum.
Just enough time to go do some shopping around, or admire the new models and accessories that the store offers.
Now that the time is up, all you have to do is pay, pick up your Trott ‘and go!
Small bonus: some shops guarantee their repair for a defined time.HOW TO AVOID HAVING A NEW ELECTRIC SCOOTER PROBLEM
Of course, it is not entirely possible to avoid problems with your scooter. It would be too good … But we can reduce the risks! And besides, it’s pretty easy.
This time, it doesn’t require a BAC + 15 mechanic (not like home repairs), I promise!
The most important thing is to maintain the parts that wear out the fastest.
I am thinking in particular of the wheels which rub against the ground with each trip. For that: carry out regular cleaning of the small stones which come to be lodged in the grooves.
You can also check that the grooves are not erasing. As you know, a smooth tire can quickly become dangerous. Even more so, if you are riding in the rain with your scooter.
Also regularly check the performance of your brakes. If you feel that your braking performance is less efficient, then try tightening or loosening them with an Allen wrench.
In addition to ensuring your best safety, reactive braking will better preserve your tires and your battery.
