The Team behind Scooter Specialist N.I.

The business is owned and managed by Jim Dorman, an engineer by trade and a qualified mechanic of over 30 years.

“I’ve been a Mod since I was an early teenager and its great to see the culture continuing, in fact there has been a real resurgence in the Mod scene throughout Ireland over the past few years.  Scootering in general has become cool and trendy once again, in addition to being an affordable and reliable means of transport".

Jim currently rides a Vespa PX200E and really enjoys participating in the rideouts and supporting the local scootering rally’s;

"There’s nothing like riding your scooter along the Antrim or Down coasts to help forget about your stresses and worries”

Regarding the shop, Jim comments,

“From the outset I had a clear vision of how I wanted the business to be and knew how important a high standard of service would be.  The passion we have about our products and what we do is clear for everyone to see, it was therefore befitting that Scooter Specialist N.I. should be awarded the Belfast Business Award for Customer Service in its first year of trading.

I set out to create a shop that had a relaxed atmosphere, somewhere you can take your time to browse a wide range of scooters and clothing, a place where you can drop in and chat to like minded people.  I am pleased to say that we have achieved that.  

We aim to exceed our customers expectations in every aspect of our business, to be a benchmark in quality and customer service, hence why your feedback is so important to us. 

We look forward to being of service to you in the near future, and hope you will take time to call in to the shop.  Until then, ride safe!"
