WAV Insurance from Fish Insurance
Our Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle Insurance policies specifically cover adapted cars and WAVs, why not give us a call.
Some general insurers may quote higher premiums for modified and adapted vehicles, as they may see all modifications as a risk. As a disability Car Insurance specialist, we know that if your car is modified it’s not typically to boost its performance or looks, but to be more functional for you. We also know that disabled drivers may actually represent a lower risk.
That’s why it’s important to compare the benefits of specialised disability car insurance cover with standard policies, because you need to make sure the insurer understands your needs and is offering the right cover for you.
