What should you look for when buying mobility scooter insurance?

A mobility scooter is a godsend if you have difficulty walking. What many people do not realise is that a mobility scooter is a motor vehicle and that you therefore need a mobility scooter insurance. In any case, you are obliged to take out at least a third-party insurance for your mobility scooter. So you are insured against damage for which you yourself can be held liable. When insuring your mobility scooter, price and quality are obviously important, but there are still a number of things you need to watch out for when insuring your mobility scooter.

Take out mobility scooter insurance; what do I have to look out for?

When you take out mobility scooter insurance, there are a number of things that you need to pay attention to. A WA-insurance is minimal obliged. The moment a mobility scooter is registered in your name, you have an insurance obligation. If you do not do this, you run the risk of a fine for driving around without insurance. It really becomes a problem when you cause an accident with your uninsured mobility scooter. In that case, you cannot recover the damage caused from your insurer. Although a mobility scooter can only reach a low speed, an accident is in a small corner. With a WA coverage, you are insured for damage that you inflict on others with your mobility scooter.
