Yes we do! At Mobility Hire we can dispatch most products nationwide by courier including Wheelchairs, Knee Walkers, Rollators, Tri-Walkers & Access Ramps.

Products we can not ship by courier are Mobility Scooters, Electric Beds and Riser Recliners.

We can also provide same day delivery in the Dublin area if ordered before 11am.

For standard products covered under our nationwide courier service the charge is only €10. This works out at a very affordable €5 each way!

Products excluded from the standard courier service like Electric Beds, Riser Recliners and Mobility Scooters are charged at various rates depending on distance. These prices start from €100 as they require an engineer to install and demonstrate.

There are several variations for deliveries depending on location and product rented.

Dublin Delivery – If the product is being sent by courier, we will not be able to provide a time as the courier is a third party service. But for large items or urgent deliveries we will deliver ourselves. Our driver will in this case confirm a time before coming over to you.

Nationwide Courier Delivery – Any rentals outside Dublin would be sent via a third party courier service. We cannot directly provide a time for delivery, however your booking will be updated with a tracking number at the start of your delivery date.

The Knee Walker is mainly used for people who are recovering from an ankle or foot operation. Once the cast is below the knee, it generally is OK for use. We recommend you consult your consultant.

Generally a Knee Walker would be rented from us for around 6 weeks. But we have seen some cases of shorter and longer periods of time required.

It is always a safer option to firstly speak to your consultant and if can’t then try a 4 week rental first.

There are 2 main differences between Transit(Transport) and Self Propelled wheelchairs.
Transit / Transport Wheelchairs – These have small wheels on the back which means they are designed for transporting the user around by a person pushing it.

Self Propelled Wheelchairs – With large wheels, these chairs are designed so that the person in the chair can propel themselves without needing help.

We offer both short term one day rentals up to months long for long term bookings. We have fantastic pricing for both short and long term options.

Sometimes, in exceptional cases we may recommend the customer should buy instead if the rental outweighs the product value as we believe firmly in providing an honest transparent service.

Yes you can! We actually contact all customers a few days before the rental ends to offer an extension to the rental period. All extensions to rentals are to be paid via card only.
We are happy for all customers to take our rental products abroad. We recommend it is insured with the airline you are flying with in case of damage in transportation.
