Motability leasing of scooters and powered wheelchairs
If you prefer not to buy, we are an approved Motability dealer ready to lease you a mobility scooter or powered wheelchairs.
The Motability Scheme is a popular and trusted leasing scheme. It enables anyone who receives the higher rate mobility allowance, to use part of these monthly payments to fund a scooter or powered wheelchair of their choice.
We have a large selection of products that are available through Motability so there will be a scooter or powerchair ideal for your lifestyle and individual needs. The Scheme provides peace of mind and offers many benefits:
- A new mobility scooter or powered wheelchair every three years
- Ongoing support from Recare
- Breakdown assistance from Motability Assist
- Replacement batteries and tyres
- Servicing, maintenance and repairs
- A weatherproof storage cover
How the Motability Scheme works
The Motability Scheme is easy to understand and easy to benefit from. You exchange all, or part of your PIP higher rate mobility allowance to lease a mobility scooter or powered wheelchair. We organise for payment directly from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) so you have nothing to worry about. You will need a least 12 months’ award remaining on your allowance to be able to apply.
If you qualify and feel the Motability Scheme is for you, we will assess your needs and recommend the best scooter for comfort, ease of use and most importantly, maximum independence.
Once you have chosen the scooter or powered wheelchair you would like, payments are automatically deducted from your mobility allowance every four weeks. This is possible as most products cost less than your weekly mobility allowance, which means you’ll receive the remainder directly from the DWP as normal.
