Insurance from Fish Insurance
Our Manual Wheelchair Insurance cover is designed to ensure that if your manual wheelchair is stolen, damaged or involved in an accident it will be promptly repaired, or in certain circumstances, replaced. (Must be less than 2 years old.)
Backed by our prompt and professional service, our insurance also includes up to £2m liability cover. This protects you against any claims of negligence where it’s alleged that you have caused damage or injury to a third party or their property.
