Shipping Costs for Repairs (Warranty & Other)

Repair Shipping (To Apollo)

When shipping your scooter to our Apollo Repair Centre, you will need to create a return label and you will be responsible for the shipping costs. We require that you ship the scooter in the original box, or a box that is purchased from us. If you do not package the scooter correctly and it arrives damaged, you will be responsible for any additional repair costs. We strongly recommend you purchase Apollo Ship+ Service. If you choose to not purchase Ship+, we strongly recommend you insure the contents of your delivery with the courier.

Return Shipping (Back to customer)

Once your scooter is repaired, our A-Crew will create a return label and ship the scooter back to you. You will be responsible for the shipping costs. Please refer to the Return Policy for updated standard shipping costs for each scooter model.

Component Shipping (Covered under warranty)

If you feel comfortable repairing the scooter yourself, our A-Team will create a shipping label on your behalf and ship the replacement component to you. You will be responsible for the shipping costs, but the Limited Warranty will cover the cost of the replacement part.

IT REMAINS THE SOLE DISCRETION OF THE APOLLO ENGINEERING TEAM TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE CORE COMPONENT OR SCOOTER ARE DEFECTIVE AND IF THEY ARE COVERED BY THE LIMITED WARRANTY. APOLLO RESERVES THE RIGHT TO VOID THE LIMITED WARRANTY IF IT IS DEEMED THAT THE CUSTOMER BREACHED THE TERMS OF THE WARRANTY AS OUTLINED IN THE EXCLUSIONS SECTION.

Apollo QC+ Service

Apollo QC+ Service was launched on November 1st, 2022 and as of this date replaces the Apollo Protection Plan on all new orders as of this date. For orders placed before November 1st, 2022, please refer to the Apollo Protection Plan section.

For defects that occur within the first 10km or within the first 30 days (errors out of the box), customers can return the scooter for a new replacement scooter under Apollo’s free guarantee, subject to Apollo QC+ Service Terms and Conditions:

US Apollo QC+ Service Terms and Conditions

Canada Apollo QC+ Service Terms and Conditions

If your scooter faces a manufacturing defect after 30 days or 10km (whichever comes first), Apollo will not replace the scooter with a new unit. Apollo will service the scooter under our limited warranty if it is covered.

If it is determined that your scooter is covered under Apollo QC+ Service, you will first need to ship the defective scooter back to Apollo before we send your replacement scooter. We will create a shipping label for you free of charge and will ship your replacement as soon as it is confirmed that the defective scooter has been shipped back to us.

The default resolution for accepted QC+ claims is replacement.

Refunds will only be offered if the same model of scooter is out of stock at the time of the claim. 

We require that you ship the scooter in the original box and packaging. If you do not have original packaging, your scooter will not be eligible for return. If you package the scooter incorrectly and it arrives damaged, your return will not be accepted.

NOTE: Apollo QC+ Service includes all components of the scooter, with the exception of specific parts including tires and inner tubes.

If resolved in Apollo’s favour, the customer remains its owner and warranty is reinstated.

Apollo will help you get your scooter back to safe/riding condition through one of our repair options, but replacing the entire unit will not be an option. 

  • Owner's Responsibility

    As a purchaser and owner of an electric scooter, we ask that all customers do their due diligence before purchasing a scooter to understand the maintenance needs required for these machines. Electric scooters will always require tightening screws, cleaning to avoid rust and squeaky brakes, and proper winter storage. Our A-Team is always here to help if you have any questions regarding maintenance - we always rather you ask than try it yourself. We also kindly ask to always keep your scooter box with you (you may need a repair or maintenance in the future and boxes are expensive to ship). We require that you ship the scooter in the original box and packaging for returns.

    Apollo Scooters has the right to amend this policy at any time.
