    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?

    Very wise!  You never know when something might happen, and better to know in advance!

    Here is the contact information for Permobil Japan:


    You may want to ask @bookman about his experience.  He had his Permobil repaired in Tokyo.

    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!

    Hi @bookman.

    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.
