Motability Scheme Agreement

If, before the age of 65, you benefit from either the higher mobility component of the disability housing allowance or the mobility supplement for war pensioners, you are eligible for the program after age 65. Please note that for a rental agreement, you must have at least 12 months of the remaining discount. For the rental-purchase program, the allowance must be extended for the duration of the agreement. About two-thirds of motability customers drive, but non-drivers can also receive a car as a passenger. Similarly, parents and caregivers can also apply on behalf of a disabled child from the age of three.

All profits are reinvested in the system for the benefit of customers. In the year ended September 30, 2016, Motability Operations reported after-tax profits of $130 million less a US$45 million donation to Motability (the charity). While many vehicles do not require the customer to pay anything beyond their mobility allowance, the customer can opt for a more accurate model in exchange for paying a non-refundable down payment. Regardless of this, motability prices are estimated to be more than 40% cheaper than retail leases, which is possible thanks to the unique VAT concessions enjoyed by the motability system. In addition, the charity Motability may provide funds to those who, because of the nature of their disability, have no choice but to choose a vehicle that receives a down payment or who may need specific adjustments that have not already been funded by the program. Many adaptations, such as.B. traction brake/accelerator, are now funded directly by the system, so the customer does not have to pay extra.

Every three years, customers choose a new car or a wheelchair-accessible vehicle every five years. More than 30 manufacturers currently offer cars through the program, with high-end manufacturers such as BMW, Audi and Mercedes becoming popular alternatives to more established suppliers such as Ford and Vauxhall. Insurance for two people, excise duty on vehicles, maintenance with a free replacement vehicle, tires and breakdown protection are included in a single monthly payment. This payment is made automatically by the Department for Work and Pensions or Veterans UK to Motability Operations under the supervision of a CP50 form signed by the tenant. At the end of the contract term, the customer can take another brand new vehicle with them. Customers can also purchase their current vehicle directly from Motability at the end of their contract, either for their own use or for a friend.

An agreement can also be transferred to another car by making a “counter” that is akin to a partial exchange. However, this is not always a financially viable option, as the value of the car may be less than the outstanding financing. To do this, an agreement must be reached with a Dealer Motability Accredited. All other requests to terminate a lease-sale must be addressed in writing to Motability Operations.

Motability is a non-profit organization established by the government in 1977. It offers disabled people and war pensioners the opportunity to use their mobility allowance to finance a car, motorized wheelchair or scooter. In the UK, half a million people are already part of the programme. During your three-year contract, we know that your car will show some signs of use – light abrasions, scratches, stone strokes or similar signs of general use.
