Hello, my name is ***** ***** I can help with this matter.
I think you will find some difficulty in returning the scooter however, you do have rights under the consumer rights act and it would be up to your to show that these apply. You can return goods (by law) 30 days from the date of purchase if they are either a) faulty or b) not fit for purpose (I think you would be looking at the latter). However, if you miss the 30 day period then within the first 6 months, you have to give them the opperdunntiy to "remedy" the situation this may be by providing you with a relevant scooter, or fixing the one you have. If your time exceeds 6 months then the onus shifts to you to show that there was an issue with the scooter upon purchase. The difficult I think you have is that the scooter is not faulty, but potential not fit for purpose. No complaint was made at the time the scooter was purchased. However, you may have some luck trying to return the scooter based on it not being fit for purpose. I hope this helps.
I would be obliged if you could Click to “accept” the answer and leave me a 5 star rating (this will not cost any extra). This will tell the website that I have responded to your question, you can, of course, continue to ask any follow up questions.
You would likely be able to argue that the ramp is not fit for purpose as the instructions say that it has to sit flush and in realist it doesn't so I would expect to be refunded for the ramp.
