Hoverboards from Amazon: Are They Safe?

Buying Hoverboards from Amazon may be the way to get a very cheap Hoverboard in the UK. While this may be the case, it can also lead to disastrous consequences. Hoverboards on Amazon are sold by independent sellers who often are not established enough to sell as a business.

Hoverboards UK from Amazon

At HOVERBOARD PRO  we love buying things from Amazon. It’s a great place to ensure that you’re purchasing a like-for-like product at a cheaper price. However, this cannot be further from the truth when it comes to Hoverboards.

You see, the thing with Hoverboards is that there is no such thing as like-for-like. Since there is no official Hoverboard or Swegway brand, the entire Hoverboard market is flooded with cheap, knock-off Hoverboards for sale on Amazon, eBay and the likes.

We have heard several stories in the past with Hoverboards from Amazon being recalled due to safety fears. Furthermore, Hoverboards from Amazon have reported catching fire with a current lawsuit pending against Amazon for allowing them to be sold.

So, why is this happening? This is due to several reasons such as:

  • Retailers are independent of Amazon
  • They are private sellers trying to maximise their profit margins and so building from cheap and dangerous materials to reduce their costs
  • There is no liability from Amazon as they refuse to fulfil them on behalf of the seller. Therefore, sellers must fulfil the Hoverboards for themselves
  • Amazon sellers often drop-ship their Hoverboards directly from China without any due care or attention to the UK consumer

So if you’re looking for a Hoverboard from Amazon, be sure to do the right due diligence against the Hoverboard seller in question. Take a look at our helpful guide on how to identify a good Hoverboard company.

Unsafe Hoverboards from Amazon UK

Hoverboards from Amazon UK

Unsafe Hoverboards for sale from Amazon UK are a threat to the British consumer. Amazon cleans their hands from any issues due to the fact that they do request for certain certifications to be produced prior to advertising. However, these certifications do not necessarily have to be from a UK source.

HOVERBOARD PRO independently verify and test their Hoverboards here in England under all British directives of safety. However, many Hoverboards sellers on Amazon produce fake or “Chinese source” Certifications that are not UK-specific. As you know, this does not in any way guarantee the Hoverboards to be safe.

Due to this Amazon will allow the sales of fake, knock-off Hoverboards for sale at the expense of the British consumer. Hoverboards from Amazon are cheap. We cannot doubt that they are probably the cheapest place to buy a Hoverboard. However, these are consequently very often dangerous. Furthermore, this is what you won’t be getting:

  • The right aftercare or customer service from the vendor
  • A hassle-free UK-Based warranty service
  • Established sellers with a stable background and history of sales
  • Legitimate UK safe certified Hoverboards made from British design and UK specification

When searching online for Hoverboards from Amazon, please be sure that they are safe. We have heard of many horror stories from those who have wrongfully purchase a cheap knock-off Hoverboard from Amazon, eBay, Gumtree and other independent sellers online.
