The Motability Scheme is a national UK charity that has been helping disabled people gain independence for years. It covers either the entire cost or part of the cost of leasing an adapted car or scooter, so you can get around with ease.
If you receive the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance or the Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of the Personal Independence Payment, you may be eligible to sign up to the scheme. Also eligible are people who receive the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement and the Armed Forces Independence Payment.
Simonstone Motor Group is fully on board with the scheme. If you’re eligible and have at least one year left on your allowance, we can help you get behind the wheel of a brand new car that can be perfectly adapted to suit you. You’ll have the car for up to three years and, if you’re still eligible for the scheme when the three years are up, you’ll qualify for a brand new model.
Stowage, access and driving adaptations are all available. All of the adaptations are designed to make every aspect of using your car much easier and more comfortable. Mobility aids can be stored more easily; we can help you in getting in and out of the car; and driving controls can be placed by the steering wheel so they’re easy to use.
With Motability options on all of the car makes we sell – Fiat, Abarth and Alfa Romeo – there’s a wide range to choose from.
We can take care of everything, so you don’t need to worry about the stress of getting the car you want. We’ll help you choose the car and organise the adaptations. We’ll set up the finance plan and organise the maintenance. Any repairs along the way will be taken care of by our technicians. You don’t even have to worry about insurance – it’s covered by the scheme, as is breakdown cover. All you need to do is set your budget and talk us through your requirements so we can sort out the adaptations.
We’re more than happy to talk you through the scheme and the services we offer, either in person here at the showroom in Bristol or over the phone. Call us or submit an online enquiry form and we’ll book you in for an appointment with our Motability specialists.
