Is any extra funding available for WAVs on Motability?

You can apply for extra financial help from Motability, to help with the cost of extra adaptations such as a Transfer Seat, or should the advance payment of the Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle you need be more than you can afford. Motability grant applications are means-tested on a case-by-case basis. For more information on Motability Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle grants, contact us on 01935 872603.

How do I get a WAV if I don't qualify for Motability?

For those who are unfortunately not eligible for the Motability Scheme the alternative is to choose from our new Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles, Ex-Demonstration or Used Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles. Under certain circumstances this route may be more cost affective than the Motability Scheme.

Nearly-New WAVs

Occasionally we are able to offer Nearly New WAVs via the Motability Contract Hire Scheme. These are available to lease for a period of 3 years, and enjoy the full support that the Motability scheme provides, including insurance, servicing and maintenance for the lease term.

Nearly New WAVs usually benefit from a lower advance payment, making them more accessible for those on a budget. However, choice is more limited, and Nearly-New vehicles can only be demonstrated or delivered locally, or on site at the Brotherwood factory when you visit.
