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.
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.
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.NEARLY-NEW WAVS
