AYes. The insurance policy covers the wheelchair and anyone who uses it with your permission.
QWho do I call if I need to make a claim?
AIf you need to make a claim on your powered wheelchair insurance, please call 0800 012 6327 as soon as possible.
QWhat happens if I break down? How will I get home?
AOur powered wheelchair policy will pay towards the cost of you and your wheelchair getting home following an accident or breakdown. Our Extra policy includes Fish Mobility Rescue, providing recovery to your home, holiday home, or a local repairer.
QDo I have to insure my powered wheelchair?
AIt’s not a legal requirement to insure your wheelchair, but as they are expensive and often essential in helping you to stay independent, it’s a wise choice to make sure it is protected.
QDo you give me the money to replace my wheelchair if it is stolen or cannot be repaired?
AYes, you are covered for up to £7,000 on our Standard policy and up to £10,000 on our Extra policy.
