If you have a problem with your home chargepoint

Please contact whoever installed your home chargepoint. You can find their name on your chargepoint. If you can’t find this, contact us and we’ll tell you, then you can get in touch with them.

If you have a problem with your electric car

Please contact your dealer. They’ll be able to help.

If you’ve broken down or run out of charge

Call the RAC on 0800 73 111 73 and they’ll charge your car at the roadside or recover you and your car to the nearest chargepoint.

If you have a problem with your charging cable

If your cable came with your chargepoint and it becomes damaged, lost or stolen, it’s your responsibility to get it fixed or replace it.

You might be able to add it to your home insurance to make sure it’s covered, and they might cover the cost.

If your cable came with your vehicle when you collected it from your dealer, we’ll cover it if it’s damaged or stolen.

Call Direct Line Motability (DLM) on 0300 037 3737 and they’ll get it fixed or replaced, you'll just need to pay the excess of £100.

Who owns the chargepoint and do I need to give it back?

The chargepoint is your property once it's been fitted. We recommend you add it to your home insurance.

You do not need to give it back to us at the end of your lease or if you end your lease early.

If you want it removed, you’ll need to pay for the cost of this.

If the customer passes away, you can either keep the chargepoint or the next of kin will need to pay to have it removed.

If you’re moving home and you had a chargepoint installed

If we already installed a chargepoint for you at your old home, you’ll need to pay to have one installed at your new home.

Or you’ll need to pay to have your old chargepoint moved to your new home.

If you use the bp pulse network and you want a home chargepoint

If you already use the bp pulse network and you’re now able to have a home chargepoint installed for the first time, please contact us and we’ll talk to you about your options.

Your chargepoint warranty

Every chargepoint we give you has a three-year warranty. You’ll need to speak to the supplier directly about cover after those three years.

If your chargepoint has been damaged or vandalised

You or your home insurance provider will need to pay for this. Please contact your insurance provider.
