PROBLEMS WITH SOME RENTAL COMPANIES OF ELECTRIC KICKSCOOTERS IN SEVILLE
The City Council of Seville recently ordered the precinct of the warehouse and workshop of the Bird company, located in the La Negrilla business park, which was one of the two that manage the service of renting scooters in Seville.
Agents of the Fire Department, who also appeared on the premises, warned that the electrical installation could “be above the capacity of the ship.” These types of situations pose a great fire risk that compromises the safety of the ship but also of the neighboring farms.
Surf the City offers its clients the possibility of renting a perfectly revised and approved electric scooter. The controlled delivery and cargo points provide peace of mind, both for the customer who will not be reprimanded for leaving the vehicle abandoned on public roads, as well as for the rest of the citizens and pedestrians of the city of Seville.
At the time of the police intervention there were between 300 and 400 scooters with the charging points included. Bird’s warehouse was used as a base for scooters for storage, reloading and even as a workshop. The closing order of the facilities is due to the fact that the ship lacked the corresponding license as a warehouse or workshop.
Surf the City electric scooters are stored, loaded and checked at a single approved and risk-free point. This Sevillian company has all the necessary permits for the proper development of its activity and has not received a warning in this regard on any occasion.
