What is Motability?
The Motability Scheme is the leading car scheme for disabled people. Operated by the Motability charity, the scheme enables people with disabilities to exchange their mobility allowance to lease a new car, scooter, or powered wheelchair. It is an affordable, convenient way for you to live a more mobile, more independent life.
Stratstone offer a range of Motability vehicles from premium brands. With a variety of cars available, including city cars, saloons, estates and SUVs, you can find the right vehicle for your lifestyle at Stratstone.
Your car can also be fitted with adaptations to help you access your car, drive, or store mobility aids, according to your requirements. You may also nominate up to two named drivers for your vehicle, and after three years of leasing your first Motability car, you may choose a new model.
All of your motoring needs are taken care of on the Motability Scheme. Insurance, servicing and maintenance are pre-arranged and included in the price you pay. Cars in the scheme are covered by RSA insurance, RAC breakdown assistance, Kwik Fit tyres, and Motability's award-winning UK-based customer services team, providing you with complete peace of mind and a stress-free leasing experience.
