The government-funded Motability Scheme enables motorists with a disability to retain their independence with great value financial schemes to put towards new cars.
We at the Furrows Group are champions of the national Motability Scheme, which is enabling motorists all over the country to put their mobility allowance towards a new Ford, Mazda, Kia or Skoda.
In order to take advantage of the Motability Scheme, you must be receiving either the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance or the War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement. For those unable to drive, or who choose not to, you may nominate two people to drive on your behalf. Parents or carers of children with a disability may apply on their behalf. For more information about the scheme please click here to visit the Motability Website.
The highly-trained team of Motability advisers at Furrows will be able to offer you complete and impartial advice, to help make the right decision.
The Motability Scheme offers two leasing options: Contract Hire and Hire Purchase.
Contract Hire is an agreement of three years that enables you to rent a new Motability vehicle. The lease includes tax, insurance, aftersales services and breakdown cover. The agreement has a mileage limit of 60,000 miles over the three-year period. In order to be eligible for the Contract Hire option, you will need to have a minimum of 12 months’ award length remaining on your allowance.
Hire Purchase allows you to buy your own car. This means you can make modifications and exceed the 60,000 mile limit. The lease runs for between two and five years. To be eligible, you must be receiving your mobility allowance for the full length of the agreement. Motorists selecting Hire Purchase will be responsible for arranging and financing insurance, tax, aftersales care and breakdown cover.
