Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles Insurance

As a driver of a wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV), sourcing the right insurance policy can be a struggle. Mainstream insurers aren't usually familiar enough with the adaptations made to your vehicle or your needs as a disabled motorist. This is where our specialist insurance expertise comes into its own, and at Chartwell Insurance we will find you the policy to fit your vehicle and needs.
