Shopping For Hoverboard Store Check List

Hoverboards. “There are so many out there I just don’t know where to go.” “How do I know that it won’t catch fire?” “Why would I get one?” “What’s the point of a hoverboard, doesn’t that just promote laziness?” “What should I ask when I go to buy a hoverboard?”

Time and time again I hear these questions, now, it’s time to get some answers. Let’s face it, everyone wants to be safe, have fun and fit in. With more and more people purchasing a hoverboard how do you know where to go or if it is going to blow up?  Anyone can say that it won’t blow up, it won’t catch fire but is that really the case? Is it really that good of an idea to have children riding around on hoverboards on the sidewalks, roads or to the park, what about schools?

When purchasing a hoverboard you want to make sure that the store you’re getting it from is reliable. You can do that by checking Google reviews or Facebook reviews, including word of mouth.

Reviews – Check!

“These guys are the awesome. I called them about a issue about a hover board which I didn't even buy from them. They asked me to bring it in & they fixed my issue then and there. It was a loose connection issue. On top of this they didn't charge me a dime. I am definitely going here for my next purchase.”  – BBN

“Absolutely wonderful Customer Service. Do not have one complaint about these guys. Great selection of products and they have always treated my kids and I in the upmost professional way. Call and speak to Kash...he will recommend and educate the best way. Never once has he upsold me to a more expensive model...always sticks with what's best suited for the kids. Awesome”
– Ian Simpson

Now that you’ve checked their reviews look at their website, see what it’s like. Does it look professional, is there a lot going on, is it easy to use questions like that.

Then try calling them and ask about their products, warranties and repairs. Learn about the process of getting a repair done. One of the reasons you want to do that is because then you know what to do if something were to go wrong with your hoverboard. For instants, what happens if your main board stops working or you have a dead gyro? What happens if all of a sudden your hoverboard won’t turn on or off? Then what? I mean children, grandchildren and some adults are riding these devices what happens if their riding it and it just turns off for no reason even though it’s fully charged?

I realize that some of you might not know what some of those words/ pieces are but I promise if you keep reading my other blog posts you’ll learn about hoverboards as well as the technology and other products. But back to these questions.

If the person gives you a go around or says “I don’t know” then you might want to look at a different store to purchase your hoverboard from, like right away.

Now it’s time to go into the store and see what it’s like. If you get there and it’s someone’s house, please run away as fast as you can which includes if it’s someone’s vehicle. There are other stores that sell hoverboards as well as something else, such as candy or games. It’s always best to pick a company/ store that specializes in the product you are going to buy.

Some stores let you try out the product which is great because not everyone is going to love the hoverboard product and that’s okay, but it’s better to find that our prior to making a large purchase then letting it collect dust in a basement, attic or storage unit.

So I have come up with a few steps to do before making a purchase.

·         Step 1 Check Reviews (Google & Facebook)

·         Step 2 Check their website

·         Step 3 Call

·         Step 4 Ask questions about warranty, repairs

·         Step 5 Go into the store

·         Step 6 Making the purchase

There you go, now you have the steps you need to find the store. What do you do when you are trying to figure out what store you’re going to buy it from?

Next you have to look at sizes and finding the right hoverboard for the person you’re buying it for. Make sure to leave a comment below, let me know what you think and if you have any questions leave them below in the comments section and I’ll make sure to answer them.
