The Motability Scheme is a platform which allows you to use your mobility allowance to lease a brand new car which has all the running costs included in the price… Meaning you just pay for fuel! Motability aims to provide the most affordable and convenient way to run a car.
A lease normally lasts for three years and payments are taken every month from your mobility allowance and paid to the Department of Work and Pensions. The lease includes Insurance, Breakdown Cover and Servicing and Maintenance.
Not all customers will drive therefore you can nominate up to two named drivers on your insurance. This often applies to parents/guardians of children ages three or over who may receive an allowance.
At the end of your lease you can either hand your car back or return to at Trenton and select another brand new car!
There are three pricing options for Motability:
At all of our Trenton dealerships we have dedicated Motability specialists who are trained to help you throughout the entire process of your Motability scheme. Our Motability specialists will be happy to explain your options to you and talk to you about any adaptations you may require. We would recommend arranging test drives to find the car that suits you best.
A wide range of adaptations are available to make your new car perfect for you, many of which come at no extra cost. Adaptations can vary to make driving more comfortable for you, a few examples are; left foot accelerators if you have limited mobility or control in your legs, steering aids if you have limited upper body strength, car boot hoists if your wheelchair/scooter is difficult to lift into your car and even swivel seats if you find it difficult to go from wheelchair to car seat. To find out more about adaptations please contact one of our Trenton sites and a Motability specialist will be able to assist you.
