Looking to buy the Xiaomi M365 Pro? Mistakes you'll want to avoidJuly 10th 2019
Have you found the new Xiaomi Pro for sale on another site?
Before you purchase, we recommend a few simple checks to avoid getting stung by foreign imports and fakes.
Fakes can be unsafe and unreliable. Illegal imports won’t carry a UK warranty and may not adhere to UK safety standards. There are a lot of companies who import electric scooters illegitimately. At Pure Electric, we guarantee every product we sell is genuine, sourced directly from the manufacturer and is approved for sale in the UK.
[Due to our close professional relationship with Xiaomi and our well-established supply chain, we are confident that we will be one of the first UK retailers to stock the Xiaomi M365 Pro legally in the UK].
Ask yourself the following questions to establish whether a retailer is trustworthy:
Is the retailer you’re buying from adding VAT to your purchase? If not, they may be selling stock not approved for sale in the UK. Check for a VAT number on the retailer’s website.
Do they offer a UK warranty? This is essential because you may otherwise have to send your scooter abroad for return or repair should anything go wrong. This is often charged at your own expense and with little help or assistance. Every Xiaomi M365 Pro scooter we sell comes with a 2-year UK warranty.
Do they have physical UK office premises? Does their website look professional? Also check their wider online presence for example, across social media channels.
Check third party reviews. A strong Trustpilot rating is a simple way to check credibility and other customer’s experiences.
Does the scooter and its box carry a CE mark? This will be clearly displayed on a sticker on the outside of the box and on a sticker placed on the scooter itself. If the box and scooter don’t have a CE mark, it means the scooter hasn’t been checked to ensure it meets EU safety, health or environmental requirements. It also means the scooter won’t have a UK warranty.
These tips will help you buy an electric scooter from a safe and reputable retailer.
