Financing your Vehicle
You can chose to finance your vehicle privately or through the Motability Scheme. Cartwright Mobility is an approved supplier of wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs) and vehicle adaptations on the Motability Scheme. If you receive a higher rate mobility allowance then you may be eligible for funding through the Scheme.
If you’re in work or you’re about to start a new job then you may also be eligible for help through the Access to Work Scheme. Find out more here.
What is the Motability Scheme?
The Motability Scheme allows you to exchange your higher rate mobility allowance for a five year lease on a wheelchair accessible vehicle. To be eligible for the Motability Scheme you must have at least 12 months remaining on one of the following allowances:
Higher rate mobility component of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
Enhanced rate of the mobility component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
In addition to your weekly allowance you may have to pay a fixed amount up-front to cover the full cost of the vehicle, known as an Advance Payment. If you are unable to afford the type of vehicle you need, Motability – the charity, may be able to offer financial help.
Why join the Scheme?
The Motability Scheme offers a worry-free way of leasing a wheelchair accessible vehicle. Their comprehensive package includes:
Insurance for two named drivers with the option to pay for one more
Servicing and maintenance covering the base vehicle and conversion
Full breakdown assistance from the RAC
Replacement tyres fitted by Kwik Fit
Windscreen repair or replacement
Annual car tax
A home visit about a month after your WAV is delivered to check it's meeting your expectations
