Insurance for motorhomers with mobility needs

5a9a9461-fd7f-4aba-9f2a-a727593decf9

Shield Total Insurance, the specialist in motorhome insurance, has launched policies for mobility scooters and wheelchairs. These cover the cost to repair or replace them, plus any damage caused while using them, to help keep users mobile and fully insured at all times, whether at home or away.

Mobility scooters and wheelchairs enable many motorhome owners to enjoy a holiday safe in the knowledge of taking the comforts of their own accommodation with them, which makes their mobility unit an essential item that should be properly insured at all times in the UK or abroad.

Shield mobility policies covering manual wheelchairs, powered chairs and mobility scooters, with annual premiums starting from £22.42 a year. These include new for old cover for mobility units up to three years old, theft of the unit and personal effects, repairs following an unforeseen mechanical or electrical breakdown, and if this means you can’t use your mobility device, it will even cover travel expenses to get you home.

All policies have a minimum of £2.5m of liability cover for accidental damage, death or bodily injury to others while using your mobility device. If any caravan or motorhome owners want to travel outside the UK, there is up to 180 days European and up to 60 days worldwide cover also available for their mobility devices.

Shield also offers the option of enhanced cover that includes cover for a manual wheelchair, in addition to the mobility device already insured, and the cost of adaptations to your mobility chair if you’re injured whilst using it.

Stuart Craig, Marketing Manager, Shield Total Insurance commented, “Please don’t assume your mobility scooter or wheelchair, or any damage, third party liability or breakdown is covered by your home insurance. That’s why, having listened to its customers, Shield has developed these new mobility insurance policies, as it knows how much people rely on their mobility devices, and the huge potential impact it has, for whatever reason, if they suddenly don’t have them.”

“This is especially relevant for caravan and motorhome owners who use them when they’re away from home,” added Stuart.
