The benefits of renting an eScooter over buying!
Posted 9th December 2019. Category: General.
WalkSmart offers two methods to get an electric scooter; either purchasing outright or on a rental. Both options have their advantages, and so will suit different customer needs. In this article, we will go through the reasons why a customer may choose renting over buying.
Renting an electric scooter is less risky. When renting, accidental damage cover is included, meaning, if you happen to damage your scooter accidentally, WalkSmart will cover the damages without cost. WalkSmart will ensure your scooter is always fully operational throughout your rental. Accidental damage cover is not included when purchasing outright, although it is an option. The risk that you damage your brand new scooter is eliminated from WalkSmart FlexiRentals.
Renting with WalkSmart is more flexible than purchasing. With FlexiRentals, you can swap and change scooters as many times as you like, on a month-to-month basis. Try out every model, and find the one that suits you best. If you find that scootering is not for you, then at any time you can end the rental! New models get released all the time, so with FlexiRentals, you have the option to swap to newer models as soon as they get released. Keep up to date with the latest tech! If you go away for a month or two, end your rental, so you don't need to pay while you are away.
If you do decide to buy, you have the option to do so and get 50% off your rental payments credited back to you towards a new model! For example, if you would like to test out the 'Xiaomi M365' before you buy, rent it out for one month at $80, then buy it outright the second month and get $40 in credit. So the price reduces from $599.95 - $40 = $559.95. If it's not right, try another model!
Free Servicing & Repairs:
eScooters require maintenance, servicing and repairs (much like cars) which are not often factored into ownership. WalkSmart has designed the FlexiRental packages to be hassle-free. Servicing is included to ensure your scooter is functioning optimally 24/7, with minimal downtime. For riders who ride on a frequent basis, i.e. for their daily commute, they will find FlexiRentals being cheaper in the long run as servicing, repairs and other maintenance items can be costly for electric scooters owners.
Along with every FlexiRental comes the help from the WalkSmart support staff! They are there to assist when problems arise, or when you need assistance with your scooter! For example; if you have a fault, WalkSmart will either repair your scooter on the spot or provide you with a replacement! Never go without an electric scooter! Although loan scooters are available under the ownership model; this service will incur additional costs.

WalkSmart recommends that you check your local state laws and regulations in relation to using electric scooters in public locations, roads and footpaths. Laws vary state by state and therefore may limit use to private locations only. Each local body is reviewing public electric scooter use, so we expect it to be regulated, but legal in all states within the short term. Feel free to contact WalkSmart if you have any further queries.
