Access to reliable transportation enables independence, choice and control. Motability Operations delivers affordable leasing to more than 600,000 disabled people in the UK.
Motability Operations (MO) operates the Motability Scheme which enables disabled people to exchange certain mobility allowances to lease a new car, Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle, scooter or powered wheelchair, providing worry-free independence and meeting their transportation needs.
Around a third of eligible people in the UK choose to use their Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payment to lease a Motability Scheme car which comes with a worry-free package of insurance, maintenance, breakdown assistance and an allowance of 60,000 miles. Today, over 600,000 disabled people and their families benefit from the mobility available through the Scheme; from everyday journeys to the shops or doing the school run, to accessing healthcare, education and employment.
MO’s customers are keen to look for greener choices and as such, MO offers a range of lower-emission vehicles including hybrids, combined fuel and new technology products, which in turn may have lower running costs.
MO’s business model is designed to ensure their operation is stable and sustainable in the long term. This enables them to provide customers with sustained affordability throughout the economic cycle. All profit is retained in the Scheme for the benefit of customers.
