What is the Motability Scheme?
The Motability Scheme is the UK's leading car scheme for people with disabilities. Operated by the Motability charity, the scheme enables people with disabilities to exchange their mobility allowance to lease a new car. It is an affordably convenient way for you to live a more mobile and independent life.
A range of premium and luxury cars from brands including BMW, MINI, Mercedes-Benz and smart are available from Stratstone. You can find the right vehicle for your lifestyle at Stratstone, with a variety of cars available including city cars, saloons, estates and SUVs.
Your car can also be fitted with adaptations, according to your tailored requirements, to aid you when it comes to accessing, driving or storing mobility aids in your car. Plus, you may also nominate up to two named drivers for your vehicle.
Insurance, servicing and maintenance are pre-arranged and included in the price you pay. Cars in the Motability 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.
