Stratstone Win National Motability Award 5th Oct 2015 Stratstone is celebrating after being named the Motability Dealer group of the Year, as part of a win for its parent company, Pendragon PLC. Over the past 35 years, Motability has helped change the lives of over three million people by getting them mobile. The scheme enables those with a government funded mobility allowance to lease a new car, including specifically tailored cars to meet their disability needs. The honour is a national recognition of Great Customer Service for the company's work with Motability Car Scheme. One Motability customer commented: "The team have been incredibly helpful throughout the whole Motability process. The staff were incredibly efficient and they always had my needs in mind, as well as being very informative and organised." "This is my second, life-enhancing car from the dealership and it provides me with total independence and mobility. Motability is a fantastic organisation which helps the lives of so many and I can only say thank you to the team who have made this possible for me." Around the UK, there are currently 630,000 people making the most of the benefits of Motability. Insurance for two named drivers, servicing, RAC breakdown assistance and a 60,000 mile allowance are included in the cost of the lease. Anyone who receives the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance, the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment, War Pensioners' Mobility Supplement or Armed Forces Independence Payment can exchange their weekly payment to lease a new car through the Motability Scheme. The Motability Scheme is available at Stratstone through Mercedes, MINI, and BMW on a variety of low-emissions vehicles.
