where to buy hoverboard

The hoverboard has quickly become a fashionable electric vehicle and the favorite means of leisure transport for children and even adults. This popularity makes it difficult to find your way around the hoverboard offer on the French market .

Indeed, more and more disreputable websites and foreign sellers have appeared on marketplaces such as Cdiscount, Amazon or even Darty and Boulanger.

We will try to help you sort out the reliable brands from those that do not meet safety standards .

As the holidays approach, it is important to take the time to compare offers to buy a hoverboard for Christmas .

Here are our 5 criteria to respect to buy a quality hoverboard

Do not buy a hoverboard on marketplaces or in supermarkets

This is the most important point because marketplaces are where most dishonest hoverboard sellers are found .

You have surely already seen these offers at unbeatable prices between €99 and €200 on sites like Cdiscount, Ebay or Priceminister. And like everywhere, when the selling price is too low to be true, it is often because the quality is not there .

These sellers are mostly located outside France, either directly in China or using warehouses in Germany or Holland. Their goal is to sell as much as possible on the marketplaces without worrying about offering products that meet CE standards or even respecting the Segway's warranty commitments.

Marketplaces are only intermediaries and when you receive a hoverboard from sellers like cool&fun, megawheels, humall or even timecool it is already too late to go back.

It is impossible to turn against the marketplaces . And these sellers of cheap hoverboards are not subject to French law, so you can't turn against them either.

Our advice: Do not buy a hoverboard on marketplaces or in supermarkets . Or only recognized brands also having their own website respecting French laws.

Choose a recognized hoverboard brand with after-sales service in France

The most recurring problem that we observe among buyers having a problem with a cheap hoverboard bought on marketplaces or in supermarkets is their difficulty in exercising the product warranty in the event of technical problems .

Indeed, hoverboards being machines made up of electronic components, they can sometimes break down. Especially since the main users of Segways are children who are not necessarily the most careful.

This is why it is important to select a brand that guarantees a guarantee on hoverboards . In general, the warranty on recognized brands is 2 years. But announcing a 2-year warranty and actually applying it are two very different things!

Our advice: Look for the customer service number and call the hoverboard seller to clarify the warranty conditions . If the website does not have a phone number, be on the alert because it may be a fraudulent site.

Do not buy a hoverboard under 300 €

As with all electronic products, the lower the price, the lower the quality . If you think about it, it's quite logical because the components will be of lower quality.

It is the same for hoverboards because underneath the body (all hoverboards look the same on the outside) the quality of the products depends on the types of batteries used, the motherboards or the motors . For more details, we invite you to read our article on which hoverboard to choose .

For less than 300€ it is unlikely to find a hoverboard equipped with Samsung cell batteries, the latest self-stabilizing motherboards and a reliable motor.

Beyond technical considerations, we must also think about after-sales service . No hoverboard seller at €150 on marketplaces and in mass distribution can afford to give you the benefit of an effective 2-year warranty for this price.

Our advice: Do not only look at the design of the hoverboard but also at the characteristics of the components and the after-sales service.

Pay attention to the legal notices of hoverboard sales sites

This is advice that we recommend you adopt for all your purchases on the Internet. Look at the legal notices of the sites and eliminate of your choice all the sites in French language based abroad (Andorra, Germany, Holland, China…).

Indeed, many unscrupulous sellers use warehouses abroad to ship their hoverboards and thus be able to circumvent French laws.

Our advice: Look for the country of registration of the site in the legal notices and the number of the French customer service . If one or other of the information is not present, do not order on this site.

Buy your hoverboard from a specialist

As you will have understood, the easiest way to buy the best hoverboard is to place an order directly on a specialist's website or directly in store.

For example, by switching to Weebot, you are guaranteed to have a quality hoverboard equipped with the best components on the market . But in addition, in the event of technical problems, you benefit from a real after-sales service in France for a 2-year guarantee .

Do the math, it is much more profitable to invest an additional €100 with a real Segway specialist rather than saving €100 on the purchase of a poor quality device on the market places so that it then falls broken down 2 months later without having anyone to turn to.

Look at the Internet reviews of unscrupulous sellers to get a feel for yourself.

J’ai acheté un hoverboard 4×4 Carbon chez Weebot. J’ai été très satisfait des conseils qui m’ont été donné pour finaliser mon choix ( en plus appel le 11 novembre férié et vous arrivez à joindre weebot sans problème) , livraison irréprochable 2 jours après le passage de commande et produit conforme à nos attentes. Cerise sur le gâteau j’avais commandé 8 jours avant le black friday, j’avais déjà bénéficié d’une offre bienvenu de 50€ , hors au black friday la remise était de 100€. J’ai donc appelé weebot qui immédiatement a accepté de me faire bénéficier de la remise du Black friday et m’ a remboursé de 50€. Conseil écoute client livraison rapide qualité du produit franchement très satisfait je ne peux que recommander Weebot
