The Insta-Fold is made from lightweight aluminium that helps to keep the weight as low to allow for easier lifting to and from the car. Including the batteries, this powerchair weighs just 26.5kg, or a little over 58lb in real money.
As a good comparison, imagine lifting a medium sized dog like a Dalmatian into the car, but with less spots!
The Insta-Fold’s stylish look certainly catches the eye and along with its lightweight lithium batteries, it’s a great example of our next generation mobility range. Combined, its two batteries will work to deliver up to an impressive 13 miles range.
If you prefer, you can also use only one battery for 50% range whilst keeping the other on charge at home so that you never run out of juice!
Puncture-proof tyres, all-round comfort suspension and flip-up armrests, the Insta-Fold is the Swiss army knife of electric wheelchairs – it has everything. You can even remove the seat and backrest cushions and stick them in the wash!
As with all of our own Livewell range, you’re covered by our 2 Year Warranty for added peace of mind and our commitment that this won’t let you down.
I was struggling to find a wheelchair that ticked all the boxes for my needs and this does just that; ease of use, comfort, quality, and affordability. If you are teetering on the edge of buying one, do it - you won't be disappointed!
The chair was very well packed and arrived in pristine condition. So far today (delivery day) she has just been testing out the chair at low speeds indoors. The controls are easy to get the hang of and the chair manoeuvres very well.
This wheelchair is brilliant! I suffer with Arthritis and Fibromyalgia but because of its compact light frame I can push it into my car and pull it out again with ease.
Unlike most other electric wheelchairs, our Insta-Fold features a unique foldingdesign that allows you to collapse the wheelchair with minimal effort.
This is no flat-pack wheelchair - simply lift a small lever to the rear of the wheelchair to fold, no need to get the toolbox out or any of those pesky allen keys.
No footplate sticking out, no trailing brake cables and nothing to remove; everything on the Insta-Fold folds completely flat to help make your life as easy as possible.
That's it, you're ready to go! From start to finish, this electric powerchair folds up in the time that it takes for your car boot to open - literally seconds.
This item has been refurbished following a thorough inspection by one of our qualified engineers and backed by a 12-month warranty for your own peace of mind. Our quality control process includes a full diagnostic test and where essential, the replacement of parts using genuine OEM materials. Refurbished to a high standard, items will show some signs of wear or light cosmetic damage, however this is reflected in the price with savings of over 40% off the new model! This item will be supplied in a plain brown box with the original accessories, charger and user manual.
The powerchair that truly folds in seconds! This chairs' folding mechanism was developed to replicate the easy fold systems found in many modern childrens pushchairs. The results are clear; this is a chair that folds effortlessly in seconds and reduces its size to a compact package.
The lightweight aluminium frame weighs only 26.5kg including the batteries, so it is ideal for storage at home or transportation in any car boot, airplane or coach. The two batteries easily slide and click into position and provide a range of up to 13 miles. In addition, the chair will also operate with just one battery in place, allowing the other to be charged whilst the chair is still in use.
The chair's stylish wheels are easy to clean and virtually maintenance free, and they feature puncture proof tyres. The seat cushion and backrest can be removed and are washable, along with the added suspension, this is a very comfortable chair. The flip-up footrest has ankle supports fitted as standard, and underneath the seat, there is an easy to reach storage bag for your valuables.

What is VAT Relief?
If you are buying a mobility aid for yourself or a loved one, and the user is chronically sick or disabled it is likely that you will be eligible for VAT Relief – this is where the product is supplied VAT-free at a reduced price. We are honest and upfront with our online prices so you will see that most of our prices include VAT Relief unless otherwise clearly stated, as some products are exempt from the scheme and must include VAT.
Am I eligible?
For VAT purposes, you’re considered chronically sick or disabled if you have
For clarity, the term ‘chronically sick or disabled’ does not include a person who’s only temporarily disabled or incapacitated, for example with a broken limb or someone who’s elderly but is not chronically sick or disabled.
You do not need HMRC’s permission to declare that you’re disabled or chronically sick and our advisers cannot tell you if you’re disabled or chronically sick.
Some of our more commonly accepted long-term health conditions can be found below, where applicable:
How do I claim VAT Relief?
To show that you are entitled to buy the goods with VAT Relief, we will ask you to make a self-declaration, confirming your eligibility when placing your order. This can be supplied in two different formats:
Do I qualify for VAT Relief if I am buying the item for someone else?
Yes, whether you are buying the item for someone else or yourself, the same guidelines apply as shown above. However please note that the following are not ‘personal’ or ‘domestic’ uses and are not eligible for VAT Relief:
No, you do not need a license to use an electric wheelchair though if it is your first time using one, we do recommend spending some additional time reading through the user manual and practise using the controls in an open unconfined space. Additionally, there is no legal requirement to register your electric wheelchair with the DVLA; this is only needed for 8mph mobility scooters.
Yes, all our electric wheelchairs are supplied with a standard UK plug charger. This will be provided with the user manual, usually found in a protective plastic wallet within the box. To make life easier we can also supply a spare charger to keep in another room or the car; if you’d like to place an order then please give a member of our team a call.
All our electric wheelchairs are delivered in their original packaging that includes strong internal padding to ensure the parts do not move during transit and delivery, and encased in a durable, heavy-duty outer box. Standard courier delivery includes a kerb-side service to your address but not directly to the front door or into the house. This is typical of heavy-goods couriers due to the item weight and is also provided by many other online mobility retailers to provide customers with a quick delivery option for urgent needs.
Yes and no; this is always a tough one and entirely down to the delivery environment and personal capability. Generally, our smallest electric wheelchairs are designed to be lightweight, portable and easy to transport. They are delivered in three manageable pieces that require lifting out of the box separately and assembling together in order. Bear in mind that the heaviest piece can often weigh between 15-20kg (32-44lb) – roughly the weight of a microwave! You don’t need any tools or DIY experience and the entire assembly process can often be completed within 15 minutes by one or two people. Our larger powerchairs can be considerably larger and heavier, often requiring additional help getting them in the house and set up. The box will often contain three larger separate pieces unlike smaller portable powerchairs. The heaviest piece can typically weigh between 40-70kg (88-154lb) – the weight of an average teenager! Whilst you still don’t need any tools or DIY experience, we always recommend getting two people to assemble a heavy electric wheelchair, which can still be completed within 20-30 minutes.
No, once you have carefully unpacked your electric wheelchair or powerchair, we recommend putting it on charge for a minimum of 12 hours. The powerchair will be delivered with a small amount of charge and whilst we know it can be exciting getting a new electric wheelchair, a full 12-hour charge cycle will help reduce any potential battery issues in the future – we promise it will be worth it! We recommend using this time to read through your user manual and familiarise yourself with the powerchair’s features and how to care for your battery.
We love this service and so do our customers! Our professional assembly service includes delivery to your home, into the room of your choice by one or two of our trained engineers, depending on the size of your electric wheelchair or powerchair. Your new electric wheelchair will then be assembled, safety-checked and personalised to suit your individual needs. Finally, you will be provided with a hands-on demonstration to help you get to grips with the electric wheelchair and ask any specific questions whilst the engineers are there. Unfortunately, we are unable to remove the item’s packaging as this may be required to return your powerchair within your returns period. We will call you within 72 =hours of completing your order (excluding weekends) to try and arrange a convenient delivery date. We offer our professional assembly service on all electric wheelchairs and powerchairs to help make life that little bit easier.
We provide a 12-month warranty with all our electric wheelchairs delivered within the UK. In addition to this we also provide a further 12-months on any branded Livewell electric wheelchair or powerchair, a total of 2 years. All our electric wheelchair warranties cover the cost of replacement OEM parts, engineer labour time and callout within the initial period in line with our return’s conditions, dependent upon the age of the electric wheelchair when the issue is raised.
Get in touch with us as soon as possible – we’re here to help. We know how important your electric wheelchair is to you and we’re here to ensure that any potential issues are investigated and resolved quickly to minimise any inconvenience. We have a dedicated team of people who can provide hands-on technical support either over the phone or through email. This process can often alleviate many common faults and gets you back up and running as soon as possible. We will need you to be with the electric wheelchair or powerchair when you contact us and available to talk through some simple diagnostic questions. In more severe cases where the issue cannot be resolved remotely, we can instruct a qualified engineer to investigate the issues and aim to provide a resolution on-site. This is covered in your warranty in line with our return’s conditions, dependent upon the age of the powerchair when the issue is raised.
As well as our specific Q&A section, we have also included a more general help and advice guide below to help assist you with your buying decision for you or your loved one. We understand how important mobility aids can be and we want to ensure that you are fully comfortable with the options before placing an order. If you can’t find the answer that you need below, please feel free to get in touch with a member of our team and we’ll be happy to help.
