Terms of Service

As in the case of a bicycle www.skoot.ie is NOT responsible for punctures.
However we can have our technician carry out puncture repairs for a fee.
Mechanical or electrical issues caused by a proven manufacturing fault will be resolved.
Misuse/abuse/ irresponsible/excessive riding and/or water/liquid damage will void your warranty, however as a gesture of goodwill, and entirely at our discretion, we may refer you to a third party, Dublin based engineer, who may be able to carry out a repair for a fee.
Riders should not use their electric scooters in rain, or ride in/over puddles, as there is the slight possibility that water may enter the scooter, and damage the electrical components, so use on dry days only. Please understand that WATER & ELECTRICITY DON'T MIX!
Unauthorized repair work renders your warranty/guarantee null and void (e.g repair work not carried out by Skoot or it's authorized agents)
A 6 month guarantee is provided. This is in conjunction to your statutory rights.
Buyers/riders must be at least 18 years of age, and should have experience operating a motor vehicle and/or cycling/operating an e-scooter.
Riders must be familiar with Irish Road Traffic Legislation, and only ride on private lands, with the owners written or verbal permission, or on their own private lands.

Riders should wear appropriate protective gear, helmet, padding, fluorescent jacket/vest etc.
Riders of the "Skoot Teens" collection of e-scooters are recommended for those aged 18 and 19 years of age respectively.
In order to ensure a comfortable and safe riding experience, we recommened that riders of the Skoot Teens collection of electric scooters have a maximum height of 5 foot 4 inches and do not weight more then 68 kilograms.
