At Elwing, we are committed to providing you with products and an offer that reflect our times, social and environmental contexts. We know that electric mobility is particularly important for reducing our ecological footprint. Refurbishing our products is thus demonstrating a will to tend towards a responsible mode of production and consumption.
We explain how reconditioning works.
A new life for our boards
With Elwing, we have multiple commitments. We want to offer you vehicles that are modular and therefore durable, but also affordable. As a company, we attach importance to also being as responsible as possible regarding our own operations.
In this logic, we recover the Powerkit skateboards to repair them, recondition them and then offer them again for sale at an attractive price.
Reconditioning: under what conditions?
To date, we are focusing on the boards that are returned to us within the period of withdrawal. According to our policy, it is possible to return a skateboard free of charge within 14 days of delivery. All the conditions for a return and a refund are detailed on our site.
These boards that are returned to us, like those that have a slight manufacturing defect at the end of production, are refurbished in our workshop in Bordeaux. Each board is then carefully scrutinized: we check the components one by one, we carry out tests and we clean them and then offer them again for sale.
Refurbished products: the characteristics
You should know that all our reconditioned boards are certified and under warranty for two years, that is to say in the same way as new boards. The selling price of these boards is adapted to the level of obsolescence of the product.
To help you with your purchase, we claim two levels of refurbished products. Skateboards in the Gold category have only been used once before being refurbished and show only extremely light signs of wear. For the Silver category, the boards may show some signs of wear but they have been completely revised. Of course, in both cases the Powerkits are in perfect working order.
We strive to make the lifespan of our products as long as possible. The reconditioning of certain skateboards contributes to this desire and allows us to offer you products at suitable prices. Also, in the future, we would like to succeed in developing a viable business model to take back your boards outside of this withdrawal period. To be continued!
