If you’ve heard about the Motability Scheme, you are almost certain to have a few questions about precisely how it works. At Birchwood ŠKODA, we take great pride in being a supporter of the scheme and can thus provide further insight into its benefits and options.
In simple terms, the scheme enables those in receipt of one of the government’s mobility supplements to exchange their benefit for a vehicle from leading manufacturers. This vehicle can be adapted to your needs and also comes with a number of added extras including breakdown cover, insurance, road tax, and more. So far, so simple. However, there are options to the scheme you may be unaware of, and these relate to the agreement you take out, namely Contract Hire or Hire Purchase.
The most common form of Motability agreement, the Contract Hire agreement means you pay one regular payment for your vehicle and all the added extras. This option also enables you to exchange the vehicle for a brand new one every three years, meaning you have access to the latest models more frequently.
Our Motability specialists in Eastbourne will be able to provide more information and advice on the best options for you. Get in touch today to learn more.
