Motability Scheme

 

 

Our partnership with Motability means we can offer a wide selection of scooters and powered wheelchairs on their leasing scheme. The Motability Scheme allows you to exchange some or all of your higher rate mobility allowance for a scooter, power wheelchair, car or wheelchair assisted vehicle (to find out more about leasing a car, please visit Motability’s website).

 

To be eligible for the scheme, you need to be in receipt of one of these benefits:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance
  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment
  • War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment

 

Your lease will be paid directly by the DWP, saving you any hassle with bills or payments. Your lease lasts for three years, at which point you return your scooter or wheelchair and (provided you decide to renew) receive a brand new one to replace it.

 

Scooter hire starts from £12.50 a week and includes:

  • Servicing
  • Maintenance
  • Insurance
  • Tyre and battery replacement
  • Breakdown assistance

 

If you’re interested in leasing a chair or a scooter, you can contact us to arrange an assessment. We’ll discuss what kind of scooter or chair is likely to be best, then we can bring a few to your home for you to try. Once you’ve made your decision, we’ll help get the rest of the application set up and then be on hand to help throughout the rest of the time on your lease.
