Mobility Scooter and Wheelchair Hiring IrelandIn order to use the service clients must join as a member of the Shopmobility scheme and to do so must be able to prove their identity by producing 2 types of ID (proof of address and signature). No deposit is required and customers will be given a membership card that must be produced every time they use the service.

Important: Shopping centres can be very crowded places and consideration needs to be given at all times to other people, therefore all customers will be instructed regarding the use of equipment and safety prior to using the service.

Safety tips for users

  • Always keep the speed reduced when in busy or confined areas.
  • Be courteous and show consideration for other users of the centre. Remember that pedestrians often stop suddenly and you may not be able to stop as quickly, so reduce your speed and keep your distance.
  • Always follow the safety instructions given to you by our staff about the use of your vehicle.
  • Reduce your speed when cornering.
  • When leaving the vehicle unattended, always take the key with you and try to leave it where it won't inconvenience others.
  • Never let anyone else use the equipment issued to you and never let anyone ride on your vehicle with you, even if this is a small child, as this upsets the balance of the vehicle.
  • Finally, if you do have an accident of any sort always inform your Shopmobility scheme. They can then give the vehicle a safety check before somebody else uses it.
Note: Shopmobility reserves the right to refuse a booking if in the opinion of the coordinator the customer does not meet the conditions of use satisfactorily.

The Shopmobility service is a free service primarily due to funding from the Disabled Drivers Association of Ireland, but also the support of the shopping centres. Donations are welcome.

Wheelchair Hire IrelandShopmobility is a scheme which lends manual wheelchairs, powered wheelchairs and powered scooters to members of the public with limited mobility to shop and to visit leisure and commercial facilities within a town, city or shopping centre.

The concept of Shopmobility is for anyone, young or old, whether their disability is temporary or permanent. It is available for those with injuries, long or short-term disabilities - anyone who needs help with mobility. Shopmobility is about the freedom to get around. You do not need to be registered disabled to use it. With the introduction of shopping malls and pedestrianised areas, it has become increasingly difficult to access all areas of a town or city if you have mobility impairment. Shopmobility schemes actively encourage inclusion and equality by providing wheelchairs, powerchairs and power scooters for people to use.

Over 12 years ago the Disabled Drivers Association of Ireland established the Shopmobility Scheme in Ireland to improve access to shopping for people with limited mobility. Since that first venture 12 years ago, Shopmobility has expanded to make Mahon Point Centre, Cork, Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin, Whitewater Shopping Centre, Newbridge and most recently Blanchardstown Shopping Centre friendlier places for people with reduced mobility. In Ireland, mostly for legal reasons the Shopmobility service is confined to shopping centres only.

Each Shopmobility unit provides manual wheelchairs, powered wheelchairs and scooters as appropriate to the persons mobility needs. The service is provided not only to physically disabled persons, but also to persons whose mobility is restricted by age, illness or accident, whether permanent or temporary. The Shopmobility service is a free service primarily due to funding from the DDAI, but also the support of the shopping centres. Clients must enrol as a member of the Shopmobility Scheme and to do so they must be able to prove their identity. No deposit is required. Staff members instruct users on the use of motorised wheelchairs and scooters prior to use and customers may take the equipment for up to four hours. The five Shopmobility centres have over 3000 regular users, many of whom travel from as far away as Sligo and Limerick because of the shopping freedom provided by the Shopmobility service. Shopping is now an established leisure activity and one engaged in by groups be they family or friends. The Shopmobility service allows groups to fully include friends or family with limited mobility.

Shopmobility Ireland is anxious to extend the service nationally and is always interested in new locations with suitable accommodation. New schemes require some investment and the support of the trader and site management. If you are associated with a shopping centre or would like have to the service extended to your area, call us at (094) 936 4054 or by email at info@shopmobility.ie.
