Please note the following points concerning warranty.

(b) The meet the Warranty terms there maybe conditions and requirements placed upon the owner. For example, regular maintenance or servicing requirements described in the manual. It is the responsibility of the owner to understand those terms as specified in the User Manual or as specified on the Manufactures/Importers web-site.
(c) If the vehicle owner does not follow the guidance in the User Manual, neither the Importer and/or Green-Mopeds are under an obligation to support your Warranty Claim.
(d) Different Importer/Manufacturers have different rules governing when the Warranty starts. Some state delivery date, some state registration date. Please check with us if this is a concern.
(e) There will be exclusions such as Tyres, Brake elements (pads and discs etc) and other consumable items. Please check your manual and/or request the specific Warranty terms associated with your bike to understand what is covered.
(f) Ex-demo/used bikes may not have a Warranty at all or only a residual term left from the initial delivery/registration date. Please check with us if this is a concern.
(g) For Warranty Claims. If work is required, the bike needs to be returned to Green-Mopeds at the customers expense unless a Breakdown/Recovery service has been included in the Purchase price (eg Artisan, Horwin, Silence and Niu). It will be returned to the customer at Green-Mopeds expense or can be collected. While some importers offer breakdown cover in the price of the bike, many do not so customers are advised to purchase cover such as RAC, AA etc to deal with this eventuality. Warranty cover does not imply breakdown cover or recovery unless explicitly provided by the manufacturer.
(h) De-restriction. Certain brands including SurRon (Road-Legal version) , Yadea G5 and Impulse and the Super Soco (TS, TC, TSx & CUx) have controllers that can be de-restricted to enable full power and hence higher speeds to be achieved. If a customer chooses to de-restrict their bike, Green-Mopeds accepts no responsible or any liability resulting from this action, including but not limited to:-
(i) Particular attention should be paid to the care of the bikes batteries. Manufacturers state in the documentation how to take care of the batteries including regular charging even when the bike is not being used, long term storage and cold weather care. Unfortunately the batteries will not be replaced if these procedures are not followed and the batteries fail.
i.Loss of Insurance cover
ii. Fines/Penalties or other legal infringement from not having the appropriate License for the category of class the modified bike becomes.
iii. The Manufacturer/Importer withdrawing Warranty Cover

As part of this process, Green-mopeds may or may not receive a one-time listing fee to do so. While we endeavour to obtain, complete and accurate information on the vehicle, once the buyer is introduced to the seller, they are encouraged to ask all necessary questions to make an informed decision on the purchase of the bike.
As an introductory-only service, Green-Mopeds accepts no responsibility whatsoever for the contract made between the buyer and seller especially as Green-Mopeds does not receive any money for the sale of the vehicle which is negoiated directly between both parties.
Buyers should confirm all information necessary to ensure they are happy with their purchase such as ownership, condition of the bike, faults, damage, warranty, existing finance, ability to obtain parts, insurance, tyres etc and any ability to return the bike to the Seller (not Green-Mopeds) if they are not satisfied. We are happy to provide advice on this if required without accepting liability for any such purchase made.
For the avoidance of doubt, any faults, outstanding finance, claims or damage that is found on the bike by the buyer at any time once received is solely the responsibility of the seller NOT Green-Mopeds.
(b) Note to Seller. Please note that any fees paid to list your vehicle is non-refundable.
