Motability Scheme - What Is It and Do I Qualify?

« Blog


The Motability scheme is a great way for you to be able to get a brand-new scooter or powered wheelchair with little hassle. You can use your mobility allowance to lease a scooter or powered wheelchair at a great price. Not only do you get your product, but it also comes with insurance & breakdown cover included so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Here at Countrywide Mobility, we are a registered & accredited Motability scooter & powered wheelchair supplier, with qualified Motability assessors. We can help you to find the right product for you, with free home assessment & demonstration services available if you require. You will also be entitled to a brand-new scooter or chair every 3 years as part of the scheme!

This sounds great, but do I qualify?

To qualify for the Motability scheme, you need to be receiving one of the following:

  • Higher Rate of the Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance
  • Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of the Personal Independence Payment
  • War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment

I qualify! What happens next?

Getting started is pretty simple. Come and see us here at Countrywide Mobility and we’ll be able to take you through a range of products (or we’ll come to you.) We’ll take into account a number of criteria to help you find the perfect product from the distance you travel, to the space you have to store it. Once you have selected your perfect product, our team will fill out the paperwork and schedule you in for a delivery! It’s that simple
