5 steps for checking your scooter
As soon as you’re 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, having photos is a good 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.
