Skatehut Seller Information Page

About Us:            

Skatehut was formed in 2007 as a small family business following a holiday to the USA. The MD has three sons and when his eldest spotted a pair of Heelys in one of the theme parks he decided he had to have a pair!

When they got home they found Heelys were very difficult to get hold of in the UK. They decided only thing to do was to start selling them themselves. Within a few months there were over a thousand pairs in their house!

From there we have steadily increased our product range to include Skateboards, Scooters, Skates, Footwear, Clothing and much more. We now have over 2000 product lines in stock and more on the way! With all of these products in stock we needed space to hold them all, which we now have with our two warehouses and an amazing 5000 Sq. Ft shop.

We always listen to our customers and add new brands and products every day. We have a great team of people in our warehouse, office and shop to help get these products to you, our customers. There are plenty of plans for the future so be sure to check out our Facebook, YouTube and Twitter pages for all the latest news.

A big thank you to all the customers that have used and continue to use Skatehut for purchasing the very best skate related products!

The item cannot be returned if:

·         It has been used or worn for a prolonged period of time

My Exchange is URGENT, what do I do?

We understand that sometimes an exchange may be URGENT as it is needed for a certain event.  In this case we strongly recommend that you place a new order and then send the other items back as a return for a full refund.  However, you must still ensure that you are within the 30 day return period for them to be accepted.

Please ensure that you check delivery times stated before ordering.

 

Returning Products for Warranty Issues

At Skate Hut we want to offer the best service.  Sometimes we are not able to help with a possible fault through communication alone.  Due to this we may request that a product is returned to us for inspection after a warranty issue is reported.  It may be that we need to do this to determine the fault. We may also ask for the opinion of the manufacturer on some warranty issues. After we have inspected the item (which can take 3 – 5 days) we will determine whether this has a manufacturing fault or not.  If a fault is found Skate Hut will reimburse your postage costs, and cover the postage costs to return the product to you, once fixed.  However, if the products have been damaged through use or general wear and tear, you will be responsible for all postage costs. Our returns team will be in contact to discuss the return of the item.

 

Problems with your Scooter?

Is my scooter faulty?

If you are thinking about contacting us regarding a scooter you think may be faulty or developed a fault, please take the time to read the following information. The 1st thing to do is to consult the manufacturer’s manual and to make sure everything is assembled to the standard that was intended by the manufacturer. Most scooters are now used for tricks and as such are deemed a piece of extreme sports equipment. Being at the forefront of scooters for the last 5 years has given us the opportunity to access and witness countless broken scooters over the years, with this in mind we are able to make informed decisions based on information provided by the customer and help out where possible through good will.

The life of a scooter or any other product can be increased with general maintenance, if the product is assembled to a satisfactory level as detailed in the manufactures manual this will drastically reduce the chance of breakages or problem occurring. The most common problems that can develop within the life of a scooter can be avoided, and therefore are not covered under warranty, these include:

Rounded Bolts

It is important that when tightening bolts, make sure you are using the correct tools and any Allan Key or spanner is seated correctly, do not over tighten bolts and ensure the correct amount of leverage is used.

Poor Wheel Alignment

This can be caused by a loose headset and locking nut on threaded set ups, this can be tightened commonly with a 36mm wrench. A second cause can be an insufficiently tightened collar clamp.

Clunky / Noisy Headsets

Headsets have several moving parts, and can be quite delicate, therefore require some looking after, it is important to keep them clean, free of grit mud or water, if a headset starts to become less effective, it is important to take them apart and clean them (remembering the order of assembly) we also recommend using a purpose made lubricant and not grease.

Wheels

Wheels are a wearing part, and will need to be replaced after time, but can prematurely “de-hub” or “chunk” if they are bashed on curbs or copings.

Noisy Clicking Bearings

Like headsets, bearings are a moving part and need to be kept free from dirt, water and grime. This can be helped with a purpose made lubricant; however a lot of bearings are damaged during fitment as there is no give in metal they can be a tight fit so have to be inserted with great care.

Worn Brakes

Brakes by their very nature will wear, but this is not helped by over braking or braking with too much force.

Griptape

Griptape will wear, if it didn’t it wouldn’t be doing its job, however to prolong the life of your tape try to keep it dry, and away from extreme temperatures.

Handlebar Grips

These will wear through use, and will have to be regularly changed for the safety of the rider, but damage can be caused trying to put them on, you can use hairspray or WD40 to assist with this.

Broken Handlebars

Please ensure that your collar clamp is suitable for the scooter that you are using and is sufficiently tightened up, if ridden with play in the bars this drastically increases the chance of them breaking around the clamp area.
