This Scheme has been operating since 1990, and offers comprehensive protection for ownership and use of electric scooters and wheelchairs. The protection provided by the Scheme covers the following important matters and ensures that the Owner has the funds available to deal with adverse events.
Premium from only $163 PA ($5,000 Market Value Limit)
The protection covers:
- Cover for Accidental Loss or Damage
Protection of the shuttle against damage including the cost of removing the shuttle to a place of safety.
- Replacement Shuttle following Theft or Damage
Hiring costs of a replacement shuttle following theft or accidental destruction or damage to the shuttle – up to 14 days or less and maximum amount insurer will pay is $1, 000 any one accident.
- Replacement Shuttles under 24 Months
For Electric Shuttles purchased new within the last 24 months, in the event your Electric Shuttle is declared a total loss and deemed unrepairable by Ansvar Insurance, the policy will replace the shuttle with a current make and model, up to the limit of Sum Insured on your policy.
- Legal Liability
Legal Liability for accidental damage to third party property or bodily injury to others arising from the ownership or use of the shuttle. Cover Limit of $10,000,000 inclusive of all legal costs and expenses. This cover extends to any person using the shuttle with the Owner’s permission.
- Fatal Injury
Compensation for Fatal Injury suffered by the insured up to $10,000 resulting from injuries sustained in a vehicular accident while using the shuttle (80 year age limitation).
- Overseas Extension
Your policy can be extended to cover your Electric Shuttle (excluding Third Party property damage and injury claims in the USA and Canada) whilst taken overseas for a period of up to four weeks, and when used for its own domestic purposes. This is subject to Ansvar being notified and agreeing to the extension.
Market Policy and Shuttle Maintenance
The Electric Shuttle Policy is a Market Value Policy. In the event of a total loss, the insurer will settle based on the ‘Market Value’ of the shuttle at the time of loss. Scooters and wheelchairs, like motor vehicles, need to be maintained as issues relating to maintenance are not covered under the policy.
Why need insurance?
Gaps under Household Contents insurance may arise once the shuttle leaves the owner’s premises.
Peace of Mind
The Electric Shuttle Scheme provides comprehensive coverage at a low cost. It is better to insure than to suffer the financial burden in the event you experience an insured loss.
