The Motability Scheme: A Worry-Free Mobility Solution

« Blog

The Motability Scheme is a great option for those who are looking to lease a new scooter or powerchair, without hassle. Those who are eligible for the scheme can use their mobility allowance to lease a scooter or powerchair at a great price – from as little as £12 per week.

Here at Countrywide Mobility, we are registered and accredited Motability suppliers of scooters and powerchairs, and our qualified Motability assessors will help you find the perfect product to suit your needs.

What are the benefits of the Motability Scheme?

When you lease a new powerchair or scooter on the Motability Scheme, it will come with insurance, breakdown cover, tyre and battery replacement, servicing and maintenance; so, you don’t have to worry about a thing. That’s why we like to call it the ‘Peace of Mind’ package.

Here at Countrywide, we can come to your home for free to carry out an assessment or provide a demonstration service if you require. This ensures that we find you the best product for you, without you needing to come into our Worcester mobility shop.

Plus, as part of the Motability Scheme, you will also be entitled to a brand-new scooter or powerchair every 3 years.

We’ll take into account a number of criteria to help you find the perfect product from the distance you need to travel, to the space you have to store it.

Call us on 01905 29950 for more information.

How does the payment work?

You need to have at least 12 months remaining on your mobility allowance to join the Motability Scheme. If you don’t, then you need to ensure that the allowance is renewed with your benefit payment agency.

All payments will be organised for you. The Motability Scheme will arrange for payments to be deducted from your allowance every four weeks, then paid directly to them by your benefit payment agency. Any remaining allowance will be given to you as usual to spend however you choose.

You can create an online account with Motability to flexibly manage your lease.
