We sell a wide range of Motability lease cars, configured for the varied needs of our disabled customers. With the help of our specialist team, extensive stock of vehicles and flexible payment options, you can find the perfect car to get you from A to B in safety, comfort and style.

What is the Motability Scheme?

The Motability Scheme allows disabled people to put money from their UK government-funded mobility allowance towards leasing a new car, powered wheelchair or scooter. At Sandicliffe, we specialise as a Motability car dealer. Since the scheme was set up in 1978, it has helped over 4 million people gain access to a vehicle, and given £19 million of financial support to its customers!

The ultimate goal of the Motability Scheme is simple; helping disabled people find an affordable and practical car through no-strings-attached financial support.

How does it work?

The combined efforts of the Motability charity and Motability Operations have provided disabled people with a worry-free transport solution across the UK. Motability are responsible for all funds raised for the scheme, while Motability Operations manages and maintains all customer payments for leasing their vehicles.

All Motability activity is contracted and follows strict policy guidelines, so you are guaranteed a transparent and honest service.

When you lease a motability car, the funds from your mobility allowance are paid straight to Motability Operations. Providing that you are still eligible, you can contract-out a new car every three years, along with a list of additional benefits.
