Wheelchair Insurance

Hi all,

I am about to get my new wheelchair, a quickie argon 2, and I have started to think about wheelchair insurance. So here's the question. Should I get it and if so with who.

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    Personally I don't insure mine but that's my choice 

    Depends on cost of chair i suppose and what the insurance covers and cost

    Hello @JessB and thanks for your query :)

    Insurance is obviously a personal decision at the end of the day, you'll need to find the right combination of affordability and cover to suit you. I wonder if you could enquire with a local shop/provider of powerchairs, and ask about whether they have a list of recommended insurers?

    Did you insure your previous chair?
