Best mobility car. What cars can you get via the Motability scheme? Motability lets you choose from a range of over 2,000 different specially adapted mobility and wheelchair accessible vehicles. As such, you are guaranteed to find the one that best meets your needs. But, how do you choose?
The first way to cut this number down is to understand that only 600 of these are exempt from advanced payments. These wheelchair accessible vehicles and adapted cars are paid for by the higher rate mobility component of Disability Living Allowance, as well as by other eligible benefits. The remaining 1,400 will necessitate you paying some money upfront out of your own pocket. However, don’t worry if you cannot afford to pay extra as there are a number of fantastic models that are available without advanced payments.
There is also the option of leasing a nearly new WAV, this will come with a smaller down payment. If money is less of a concern then you also have the larger, higher end models to choose from. Money is of course not your only concern when choosing a mobility car. Will also need to consider such elements as accessibility, space and handling to name just a few. Think about whether you need a car with automatic transmission. Also think about what practical extras you might want, such as air conditioning or heated seats. Always take any proposed drivers with you to the test drive and ensure that both of you are happy with the vehicle before going ahead with the lease.
