So I’m thinking of travelling to Japan with my main Permobil Electric Wheelchair. Now I don’t expect anything to go wrong, but if worst comes to worst, who/what can I contact if I need maintenance/repairs and what are the costs involved, if any?
I brought my Permobil Corpus F3 with me from the United States to Japan. I’m pleased to say that I’ve had very few issues, sans the fact that it’s a bit too big for some traditional shops and restaurants.
In terms of repair, there’s a Permobil dealership in the middle of Morishita (Tokyo). I’ve worked with them on two occasions and received excellent service both times. In fact, the Tokyo dealership has a much faster turn-around time than their American counterparts and was able to see me/fix my chair on the same day.
I’d be happy to answer any specific questions/concerns you might have!
I don’t really have anything specific, but it was just in case of emergencies. I’m from the Netherlands, and although my wheelchair is a Permobil C500, my supplier, Welzorg, is responsible for all the repairs and maintenance, so I was wondering how it works with costs, but I’ll ask Welzorg then. I plan on getting a thorough checkup before I go in order to minimize chances of breakage anyways, but you never know.
