NO REA­SON TO NOT GET MO­BILE

Belfast Telegraph - NI Carfinder - - News -

Mota­bil­ity is the UK’S lead­ing car scheme for dis­abled peo­ple. In North­ern Ire­land alone there are ap­prox­i­mately 32,000 peo­ple who avail of the scheme that of­fers peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties the op­por­tu­nity and fi­nan­cial sup­port to own or lease a car.

In ad­di­tion, pow­ered wheel­chairs and scoot­ers can also be fi­nanced through the scheme.

The ini­tia­tive also sup­ports those car­ing for a dis­abled child aged three years or over and those who do not drive can still ap­ply for a car as a pas­sen­ger and nom­i­nate two other peo­ple as their driv­ers.

As part of the con­tract hire pack­age around 400 adap­ta­tions are avail­able, with many pop­u­lar adap­ta­tions of­fered at no ad­di­tional cost.

In­sur­ance, road tax, break­down cover, ser­vic­ing, tyre and wind­screen re­place­ment are all in­cluded in a sin­gle monthly pay­ment.

A sim­ple on­line car search tool at www.mota­bil­ity.co.uk makes it easy to find and cre­ate a short­list of cars.

For more than 30 years the Mota­bil­ity scheme has helped pro­vide trans­port so­lu­tions for over three mil­lion peo­ple.

In North­ern Ire­land 32,000 peo­ple avail of the scheme that en­ables dis­abled peo­ple to use their gov­ern­ment-funded mo­bil­ity al­lowance to lease a new car, scooter or pow­ered wheel­chair.

As a unique and suc­cess­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion of the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors, the ini­tia­tive also sup­ports those car­ing for a dis­abled child aged three or over.

Those with­out a li­cence can still ap­ply for a car as a pas­sen­ger and nom­i­nate two other peo­ple.

Cars are supplied through a network of lo­cal Mota­bil­ity Dealer part­ners and many of the ve­hi­cles are avail­able sim­ply by cus­tomers trans­fer­ring their al­lowance to Mota­bil­ity for the pe­riod of the agree­ment.

For most Mota­bil­ity cus­tomers, a stan­dard pro­duc­tion car is suit­able, but as part of the con­tract hire pack­age around 400 adap­ta­tions are avail­able, with many pop­u­lar adap­ta­tions of­fered at no ad­di­tional cost, such as push-pull hand con­trols and left-foot ac­cel­er­a­tors.

The most pop­u­lar op­tion for Mota­bil­ity cus­tomers is the con­tract hire of a new car, which of­fers worry-free mo­tor­ing at af­ford­able prices.

Cus­tomers can choose a brand new car from a se­lec­tion of over 2,000 mod­els, from the ma­jor man­u­fac­tur­ers, on a three or five-year lease.

The choice of ve­hi­cles avail­able in­cludes over 500 au­to­matic mod­els, more than 1,000 eco-friendly choices, in­clud­ing the first 100% elec­tric ve­hi­cle avail­able to lease through Mota­bil­ity — and around 450 cars avail­able with no Ad­vance Pay­ment. A wide range of af­ford­able Wheel­chair Ac­ces­si­ble Ve­hi­cles (WAVS) are also avail­able.

Anyone re­ceiv­ing ei­ther higher rate mo­bil­ity com­po­nent of Dis­abil­ity Liv­ing Al­lowance, en­hanced rate mo­bil­ity com­po­nent of Per­sonal In­de­pen­dence Pay­ment, Armed Forces In­de­pen­dence Pay­ment or War Pen­sion­ers’ Mo­bil­ity Sup­ple­ment can ap­ply.

There are over 2,000 ve­hichels to chose from for Mota­bil­ity cus­tomers
