We are proud to support to Motability Scheme at Macklin Motors, which offers affordable, worry-free motoring to help disabled people, their families, and carers become mobile.
The Motability Scheme lets you exchange all or part of your mobility allowance to lease a brand-new car, and covers the cost of servicing, repairs, tax, and insurance for up to three named drivers.
As part of one of the UK's largest automotive retailer groups in the UK, we offer a fantastic choice of Motability cars from trusted manufacturers.
Choose to exchange all or part of your mobility allowance, and if you find a Motability car that costs more than your weekly allowance, you can pay a one-off Advance Payment. The Advance Payment covers the cost between your mobility allowance and the total cost of your lease, and it's non-refundable.
There's no need to worry about managing monthly payments - payments are made directly from the Department of Work and Pensions to Motability every four weeks.
You could be eligible to join the Motability Scheme if you receive one of the following mobility allowances and have at least 12 months' award length remaining.
If you have a child aged three over that is entitled to the Higher Mobility Component of DLA, you can also apply to the Motability Scheme on their behalf.
For more information on Motability eligibility, visit your local Macklin Motors dealership and chat to our friendly, experienced Motability specialists.
Joining the Motability Scheme is an easy and hassle-free way to lease a brand-new car every three years. Servicing, repairs, tax, and insurance is all taken care of and the only thing you have to pay for is fuel.
* Customer must have 12 months allowance remaining
