Scooters mean independence, comfort, and freedom. At Balance Mobility, we know that mobility scooters are key in helping people continue to live an active and fulfilling life even when their mobility is compromised.
We know how important your mobility scooter is. Regular maintenance will ensure you have many happy years of use from it, but insurance is the only way to be sure that you won’t be without your lifeline should you have an accident, or if it’s stolen.
5 Reasons Why You Should Insure Your Mobility Scooter
1. You Need Your Independence
Being involved in an accident on your mobility scooter, or having it stolen, will be distressing. Being placed in a position where you have to rely on others to do your errands, or having your activity restricted, will only make things worse. As well as making the process pretty simple, many mobility scooter insurance policies will cover the cost of hiring a mobility scooter so you don’t have to give up your independence.
2. Accidents Can Happen
Despite taking great care, sometimes the unexpected can happen, and that’s when accidents occur. Whether it’s damaged pavement, a distracted child or an inattentive driver, being protected means that even if an accident does happen, you don’t have to worry.
Depending on your policy, you’ll be covered for damage to other people’s property or person too, so any costs will be dealt with. Things like third party injuries can be distressing to deal with, especially if the other person reacts badly. Knowing you’re covered financially means it will be easier to stay calm and polite, even in trying circumstances.
3. Mobility Scooters Have Thief Appeal
It’s hard to believe that someone would steal a mobility scooter, but this type of theft is on the rise. Sometimes it’s kids taking your wheels for a quick spin, without realising the consequences – other times it’s the work of opportunists who spot the chance to make some cash.
Scooter theft can happen anywhere, whether you’re at home or out and about. Whilst there are lots of ways to keep your scooter secure, a good insurance policy means extra peace of mind and reduces the amount of time you’ll be without transport.
4. Protect Your Investment
With prices ranging from $3,000 to $7,500, your mobility scooter is a big investment and just like any other large investment, having insurance is a simple way to protect your belongings.
5. Repairs Can Be Expensive
As you might expect, mobility scooters can be expensive to repair. Many scooters have lots of clever features that make them easy and safe to use. All this tech can be quite complex, and complex can often mean costly! Choosing to insure your mobility scooter means you can benefit from all the latest features, without being worried about pricey repair bills should anything go wrong.
