Importance of Mobility Scooter Insurance

Comprehensive insurance cover for mobility scooters isn’t currently a legal requirement in the UK, and so it is all too often overlooked by mobility scooter users.

www.Help-My-Mobility.org decided to launch a petition following a spate of thefts and accidents involving individuals on mobility scooters. The firm’s director, Jason Tate, explains more;

“We hear of scooter thefts and vandalism on an almost daily basis,” he said, “not to mention incidents of people getting injured in accidents and collisions. The theft of an expensive scooter can result in the owner being left housebound, and we’ve even heard of people being forced to sell their homes to cover legal costs after a collision.”

Currently it is not a legal requirement to insure a scooter but this may be about to change with an EU directive known as the “Vnuk case”. If enacted by Parliament before or after Brexit, this may require all off-road vehicles including mobility scooters to be legally insured.

Therefore here at More Than Mobility we strongly recommend that you take out insurance on your mobility scooter as for as little as £86 per annum (only £1.66 per week) it will give you peace of mind.   Plus if you sign up today you can get an additional 3 months for FREE i.e. 15 months for the price of 12 months.  Choice of standard or plus cover available.

Your mobility scooter insurance covers many things from fire, storm, flood, loss or damage due to theft as well as public liability and personal injury benefit due to an accident.  It can also include 24/7 breakdown recovery dependent on package taken.

Please visit our website for the full range of mobility insurance we offer. If you need insurance for more than one year we have two and three years cover available.

Best Wishes
