The Motability Scheme is an affordable and worry-free way for people with disabilities and their carers to lease a new car. The scheme allows you to trade in your mobility allowance for a brand new car for years of happy, carefree motoring. However, there are many people out there who could benefit from the scheme but are yet to take advantage of it.
Swansway Motor Group is here to lay out all of the great benefits of leasing a car
through the Motability Scheme and extends a welcoming hand
to look after you along the way!
The scheme, which is a partnership between the Motability charity, banks, insurance brokers and the motor industry started out way back in 1977. It aims to give people with disabilities and their carers access to appropriate vehicles, thereby improving mobility and increasing.
Here at Swansway Group, we have twelve different brands across sixteen different sites that are suppliers to the Motability Scheme. Each site has at least one Motability Specialist* available at any time to help you to find your perfect Motability vehicle, and be your go-to friendly face for all your Motability needs.
