There are many benefits of driving a car through the Motability scheme. First set up in 1977, the scheme helps disabled people and or their carers drive a car safely so they can enjoy independence and freedom.
Motability customers who are eligible for the scheme can get a brand-new car in exchange for their mobility allowance. Lots of the cars are covered completely by your mobility allowance, and if you would like a more luxurious model you can simply pay the difference through monthly instalments or a down payment.
You get to choose the car that suits you the most. At SMC, we specialise in Ford and Suzuki, both of which have a collection of cars on offer for Motability customers.
The car you choose will be perfectly adapted to suit your needs with a long list of modifications to choose from. They fall into three main categories: stowage, access and driving, helping you with all aspects of motoring. Most of these adaptations are free of charge through the scheme, and if there are any others you would like they can simply be added to the amount you pay each month.
For three years and with up to 60,000 miles, the car is yours to drive. Lots of motoring costs are built into the finance plan so you can enjoy a hassle-free driving experience. These extras include the insurance for up to two named drivers, roadside assistance, servicing and maintenance costs.
At SMC, we have a dedicated team for our Motability customers. They will help you choose the perfect car and get you set up on the scheme. Visit your nearest SMC showroom to get started, or call us to make an appointment in advance.
