Mobility scooters have many fantastic benefits, one of the main ones being they provide somebody with mobility issues the chance to retain some of their independence. The fact that a mobility scooter is motorised and therefore doesn’t require somebody else to help you get around can offer a sense of freedom and a confidence boost.


There are many different mobility scooter designs, each with their own qualities, so it’s important to make sure you purchase the best option for your needs. If you’re considering buying a mobility scooter in Ireland, why not take a look at some of the factors compiled below, which you may want to consider when researching which scooter to purchase. 


Where Will You Use it?


There is a vast range of mobility scooter designs; some will be smaller and more compact, whereas others will be larger and bulkier. Determining the main uses for your mobility scooter or places you frequently visit can help you narrow down the qualities and specifications you require of the scooter, helping you find the most appropriate options. 


For example, if you need to travel to get to your destination, then finding an easily transportable scooter is something you want to consider. A lighter scooter that can be taken apart and reassembled swiftly, such as the Illusion scooter, could be ideal for tucking away in the boot of a car. If you like the idea of being able to fold down your mobility scooter when you travel on public transport, then something like the eFOLDI Lite could be a practical choice. 


Taking the time to research the space or facilities available in the places you visit frequently could also be very insightful when making a final decision on which scooter would work well for your needs and desires.




There are many mobility scooter accessories, which can be very helpful for different needs and circumstances. If you are buying a mobility scooter in Ireland, thinking about where and what you’ll be using your scooter for could be helpful in deciding which accessories will be most beneficial to you. Accessories like the Splash Slipover Scooter Bag can be handy if you have various things you need to carry on your person when you’re out, and it’s highly convenient as it simply slips onto the back of the chair. 


Products like the Splash Deluxe Scooter Storage Cape and the Scooterpac Canopy can be handy accessories for weather protection, something that those living in areas with unpredictable weather, may find useful. Accounting for factors like this can help you prepare for what you need, so you have what you require when you’re ready to take your scooter out.


Storage Space


As you are not always going to be out and about on your scooter, the last thing you want is for it to be taking up space in your home, especially if you don’t have space to spare. If your scooter starts to infringe on your living space it can make the room seem smaller and more cluttered, as well as potentially becoming a safety hazard. 


While those with more storage space may find it easier to store a bulkier mobility scooter, those with a smaller amount of storage space may benefit more from a foldaway mobility scooter. 


There are plenty of foldaway mobility scooter designs available, such as the Atto Sport scooter. The Atto Sport scooter is sleek, stylish, highly convenient and easily folded down to a much more compact size; it can also be split into two segments, again making storage options more convenient. 


Rules and Regulations


While mobility scooters are typically designed with ease of use in mind, as with trying anything new, it can take a little while for us to get the hang of it, so it’s always good to learn what you can. When you’re buying a mobility scooter in Ireland for the first time, taking time to research both the scooter itself and the rules and regulations that revolve around owning and driving one can help with your preparedness. 


Researching any laws or regulations that may be relevant to you during the ownership of your mobility scooter are also very important for keeping yourself safe and out of trouble, as well as helping to keep other pedestrians and drivers safe.
