What is Motability?
The Motability Scheme is a charity-operated scheme that enables people with disabilities to exchange their mobility allowance to lease a new car, scooter, or powered wheelchair.
It is an affordable and convenient way for disabled people to get mobile. By joining the scheme, you gain increased freedom and independence plus the thrill of having your own brand new vehicle.
A huge range of makes and models are available from Evans Halshaw, meaning you can find the right car for you. Vehicles can also be fitted with adaptations according to your needs, helping you drive, access, or store mobility aids in your car. You can name up to two named drivers for your vehicle, and you get to choose a brand new car every 3 years.
Everything is taken care of on the Motability Scheme. Insurance, servicing and maintenance are all pre-arranged and included in the price you pay. Cars in the scheme are covered by RSA insurance, RAC breakdown assistance, Kwik Fit tyres, and Motability's award-winning UK-based customer services team, providing you with complete peace of mind and taking the stress out of having a car.
How the Motability Scheme Works
Getting your new vehicle through the Motability Scheme is simple and straightforward. First, browse the offers available on the scheme to find the right one for you, choose any adaptations you may need, and add any named drivers. Then, arrange to pop into your nearest Evans Halshaw Motability dealership where you'll be able to test-drive the cars you're considering. Once you've made your decision, you can drive away in your brand new car on the day. It's that simple!
