Your Guide to Motability Cars From Harwoods

Harwoods offers motability cars in the UK from Audi and Volvo. If you're looking for a reliable and practical solution to maintain your mobility, the Motability Scheme is your answer. In this guide, we'll help you navigate through the scheme, understanding how it operates, and choosing the perfect motability car that fits your needs. Whether you're just starting with the scheme or have been a member for years, we're here to help you optimise your motability car experience.

What is the Motability Scheme?

The Motability Scheme is a UK government initiative created to enable individuals with disabilities to lease a car, scooter or powered wheelchair using their mobility allowance. The scheme aims to make transportation accessible and affordable for those who need it the most.

Eligibility for the Motability Scheme requires you to be a recipient of one of the following mobility allowances:

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA)

  • Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

  • War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement (WPMS)

Alongside these mobility allowance criteria, you must have at least 12 months of benefit payments remaining to join the scheme. If you meet these requirements, you can select from a broad range of motability cars from approved dealers like Harwoods.

The Motability Scheme offers a comprehensive package, including the vehicle cost, insurance, servicing, maintenance, and breakdown assistance. This means you can enjoy stress-free motoring without worrying about unforeseen expenses.

Moreover, the scheme permits you to nominate up to two drivers, meaning family members or carers can also use the vehicle on your behalf. Remember, the vehicle's primary use should be to assist with your mobility needs.

Participating in the Motability Scheme not only provides you with a reliable vehicle but also the support of a dedicated team of experts to help you throughout your lease. This allows you to focus on what's most important – relishing your newfound freedom and independence.
