“Item was great. Postage was terrible”

Written on: 26/09/2013

We ordered a scooter for my son with next day delivery but it never arrived. The delivery company didn't leave a card so we didn't know where the item was. Had to contact skate who told me the company name. We called the company who said they couldn't delivery it for another 3 days. In the end my husband had to drive to collect the scooter. We were really disappointed. Not good at all!!!… Read Full Review

“Frenzy Scooter (purple/pink)”

Written on: 26/08/2013 by Samiarden (1 review written)

Scooter was used once, Daughter came to me and said it was bumpy. After checking the rear wheel I noticed flat spots, which I think were made when she stood on the break. I just think the material the wheels are made from should last longer and not wear so easy… Read Full Review

“First order”

Written on: 19/08/2013 by MARK.O.LLOYD (1 review written)

I ordered a new Blunt KOS scooter for my son's birthday. After wrestling with the rather prescriptive website, the time for guranteeing next day delivery had passed. Galling but to make sure of the delivery for the day after, I paid the extra £10 for guaranteed delivery before 12. On the day of delivery, I received a message to say that the delivery driver had not been able to find the address. I do not accept this. The delivery address is one of only 3 houses in a lane. Asking anyone in the… Read Full Review

“Never having bought a scooter before I had no idea...”

Written on: 18/08/2013

Never having bought a scooter before I had no idea where to start. Fortunately I found another website that had all the necessary info in plain English. After a little research I bought from Skates as they had the best price. Delivery came on the day they said it would so I have no complaints about the service, although the online tracking was not helpful, it didn't work. All in all I would say good site, good service could do with a little more info on products (in plain English) so parents… Read Full Review

“Bad instructions”

Written on: 12/07/2013

My son spent £130 on a Grit scooter and was disappointed to find that the handle bars wobbled and we couldn't seem to tighten them. When we took it to a scooter shop they explained that the instructions were very unclear and they also needed tightening elsewhere to prevent the wobble. The scooter shop kindly did this for us free of charge so the problem is ow solved. I feel that if the instructions were clearer my so would have had a better experience when receiving his scooter… Read Full Review

“Recent Scooter Order”

Written on: 17/06/2013 by abrock (1 review written)

I ordered a scooter for my son for his birthday. This arrived at the right time. I was sadly disappointed to find that the box it had arrived in was battered about and the sticker on the foot plate of the scooter was scrapped off at the corner and tatty looking. It was all only cosmetic damage but as it was a birthday present I wasn't particularly happy about the condition. I have ordered from Skates before and have been previously very happy with the service… Read Full Review

“Ok shop disappointed with quality of scooters”

Written on: 16/06/2013

The scooter was receive quickly but given the amount of money those costs I don't think the are good value for money as the wheels and bearings don't last a minute. They are intended for doing stunts but then the parts don't last, should come with at least one st of spares… Read Full Review
