Following the Governments latest announcement regarding the national lockdown, Snows Volvo 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.
The Motability Scheme is a UK-registered charity that helps motorists with a disability gain access to brand new vehicles and you could soon be on the roads in a high-quality vehicle from the marque such as the award-winning Volvo XC40.
Am I eligible to join the Scheme?
You are eligible to join if you are in receipt of one of the following allowances and have at least 12 months’ award length remaining:
• Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (ERMC PIP)
• Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (HRMC DLA)
• Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
• War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
Remember, if you do qualify for the Motability Scheme, you don't have to be able to drive yourself! You could have a parent, carer or family member insured for you.
What does the Motability package include?
When you lease a car through the Motability Scheme the following is always included in the price:
Car insurance, servicing and maintenance
Full breakdown cover
Windscreen repair or replacement
60,000 mile allowance across the 3 year period
Certain adaptations at no extra cost
Up to three named drivers
Adapting your Volvo makes it easier for you to drive, while still remaining operable by designated parties. For example, we can introduce hand controls to the car that allow you to easily manipulate braking and acceleration functions. If access is an issue or if you need to store a wheelchair or scooter, we have the solutions.
Furthermore, you can choose a new model every three years!
Having a car that suits your lifestyle can make a huge difference. At Snows Volvo, we want to help you find a vehicle that meets your current and future requirements – and we want to make it as easy as possible. That's why our Motability experts are happy to provide their knowledge and experience to take care of you and your specific requirements from start to finish.
