The first step with the Motability Scheme is choosing the right vehicle to suit your lifestyle, requirements and taste. If you haven’t yet decided, Liam or Jordan at The Downside Motor Company will help you to explore all available models, explaining and comparing the benefits of each. You will also have the opportunity to take an obligation free test drive to ensure that you are completely satisfied before making a decision. Should adaptations be required, we can arrange them to make your motoring experience easier and more comfortable. We have a long standing relationship with several adaptation specialists and have been handling adaptations of all types for many years.
The next step is to arrange the lease of your chosen vehicle, otherwise known as Contract Hire. The Vauxhall Motability Scheme Contract Hire allows you to lease your vehicle for a three-year period at a fixed rate. As you do not technically own the vehicle, there’s no need to worry about the stress of reselling, and no unexpected bills are faced. When your contract expires, simply hand it back to us and choose another brand-new Vauxhall. It really is as easy as that.
When you select a vehicle with ‘nil advanced payment’, your mobility allowance is assigned to Motability who will cover any upfront bills on your behalf. Motability offers not requiring an initial payment are available, but if payments are necessary, they are easily paid directly to us as a single fee.
After choosing your vehicle and agreeing to the leasing terms, we will process the order on your behalf. Motability will then send you an acceptance letter containing your Personal Identification Number (which you will need when collecting your vehicle) and we’ll get to work arranging your new car.asing terms, we will process the order on your behalf.
