Mobility Scooter Theft on the Increase
08 May 2014
It’s becoming more and more common to see stories about Mobility Scooter theft in the local press and police are warning owners to be extra vigilant. Some are recovered in state of disrepair; a scooter stolen in Weymouth last month was discovered torched in a field 2 days later, while some are never recovered and with the value of high end scooters going into the thousands it’s not difficult to see why.
The theft of a Mobility Scooter does not just have financial implications, it can also have a big impact on lifestyle as for some people it is their only means of getting out and about. A pensioner in Aldershot had his scooter stolen last week and was unable to get out, even to his local shops, until he was able to arrange a replacement. Whilst we can take precautions to avoid theft, some thieves will always find a way and that’s where having the right insurance can help.
