5 steps for checking your scooter
As soon as you've given your rental- vehicle, use your phone or camera to film or photograph every part of the scooter. This is a quick and easy way to document the original condition of the bike.
If the rental company questions whether you scratched the paint or broke any pieces, photos are an excellent way to show any pre-existing damage.
Body: Is the scooter frame or body in good shape? Note any scratches or damages with a photo before leaving the rental shop.
Tires: Are they properly inflated?
Brakes: Do the brakes work? Test them before leaving. If the brakes touch the handles without being squeezed, ask for a different scooter.
Ignition: Is the ignition damaged? Does the scooter turn on?
Lights: Test the turn indicators, high beams, and gauges.
