What is Motability

At Budgen Motors, we make the leasing (and buying) of vehicles as simple as possible for all of our customers. That includes those who are less mobile. Motability is a registered charity that allows disabled people to access exclusive deals when leasing cars. We are proud to say that Budgen Motors is a Premium Partner of the scheme, here to get you on the road as cost effectively as possible.

How does it work?

Motability enables those who qualify the chance to exchange their government-funded mobility allowance to lease a new car. Sounds simple? Well, it is. The scheme gives disabled people the chance to become more mobile and have more independence. It provides a great quality of life boost that all customers appreciate.

Why should I sign up?

Not only is the scheme more affordable, but it is also completely worry-free. You choose which brand new car from our wide selection of vehicles you’d like to have. Then insurance, breakdown assistance, servicing and maintenance are included in the price. All you have to do is fill up with fuel and head out on to the roads. On top of that, after three years, you’ll get to swap your car for a brand new one of your choice!

If you don’t drive, there’s no need to worry. You can still take advantage of the benefits of Motability. As long as the vehicle you lease is used for your benefit, you can nominate somebody else to drive for you.

Motability even helps you with car adaptations if necessary. Whether it’s an easy-release handbrake or swivel seats to help you access the car, Motability can help.

It really is simple. Pick your car, take it for a test drive, complete your order and then, you’re all set.

Am I eligible?

Even though the scheme is well-established, lots of people aren’t even aware that they’re eligible for Motability. In order to access these exclusive deals, the requirements aren’t complicated at all. Age isn’t even a factor.

The conditions are that you receive one of the following disability allowances and have at least 12 months’ award length remaining:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)
  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)
  • War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

If you fit into that bracket, then you are sorted.

Since being established in 1978 the Motability scheme has helped millions of disabled individuals and their families get the freedom they’ve longed for. Again, Budgen Motors is proud to support such a well-respected organisation and offer assistance to those who need it.
