Following the Governments latest announcement regarding the national lockdown, Snows Fiat sales showrooms will be closed to the public from Thursday 5th November. However, our teams will be operating online and over the phone to handle your enquiries. The Motability Scheme remains open to support customers during this time, meaning it is possible for car handovers to go ahead and new applications to be placed.
Snows has officially been named 'Regional Group of the Year' in the 2020 Motability Dealer Awards due to our high standard of customer service to those on the Motability Scheme.
The Motability scheme is a vitally important service that enables motorists with disabilities, or parents of disabled children to access the latest and most reliable vehicles.Many of our Fiat customers are unaware about the Motability Scheme and what it takes to qualify for the exclusive benefits that come with it.
AM I ELIGIBLE?
If you receive one of the following motability allowances, you could be eligible to join the Motability Scheme:
✓ Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)
✓ Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of the Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)
✓ War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
✓ Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
Please note that you must have at least 12 months award length remaining, in order to fully qualify.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FIAT MOTABILITY?
In exchange for that mobility allowance, all Fiat Motability customers receive a new car every three years plus:
✓ Fully comprehensive insurance from RSA Motability (RSAM)
✓ Full Servicing, maintenance and repair
✓ Up to three named drivers
✓ Breakdown assistance (from RAC)
✓ Plus adaptations, if needed, with many at no extra cost
If your disability prevents you from driving, or you are too young to drive, you can nominate two people to drive on your behalf – your partner or parents, for instance.
In addition to a brand new car, your payments also include the cost of any road tax, servicing, tyres and breakdown cover, plus comprehensive motor insurance. After three years, simply hand your car back and choose a new one. If you require adaptations to make access or driving the car easier for you, these are available – many at no additional cost.
Get in touch with one of our showrooms where we can discuss your requirements and happily take you through everything in fine detail, including any responsibilities you have as a member of the scheme.
